print from command line, normally use cups
 
I have cups working on my slackware machine and I can print to my network printer from X apps, like mozilla and such. But, if I don't startx, and want to send a text file to that printer, how do I do that?

Thanks.

lpr <filename>

works fine on my Slack, provided the textfile is straight ASCII.

lpr won't do it.

But, in searching around further I found that lpr-cups will do it.
