I was studying the skeleton.recipe file, to see how I might create a recipe for Netsurf, and decided I needed to print it. Then I thought - no way that's happening on Syllable. I'll thought I'd have to exit Syllable, fix up CUPS on the host, and print it there. But - a Wordpress post jiggled my memory, and I thought about just using the straight-thru option of Qemu:

-parallel /dev/parport0

(where parport0 is a symlink to /dev/lp0)

I used Syllable's printer app to set up /dev/printer/lp/0 and then used the old cat trick:

cat skeleton.recipe > /dev/printer/lp/0

Syllable printed the skeleton.recipe file to my host machine's parallel port just fine! (after I fixed the line endings with unix2dos, for which I downloaded the source). I guess I could have used ghostscript as well.

So - yea Syllable!

Yup, we've had pretty comprehensive printing support for a very long time. It was among the first big enhancements we made after we continued the AtheOS project. We executed a very targeted development plan.
