Print From the Buffer via the Command Line

When you are working with files, you might want to print a subsection of the page(s). In this example, I don't won't the whole page printed, so I perform a copy and paste action for the desired text. I normally use cmdtool utility, which uses the copy/paste keys.

Here's a partial description of My SysAd Blog header:

#lp (set for default printer)

control ^d (control d)

Otherwise

#lp -d yourprinter
