Just starting out and have a question? If it is not in the man pages or the how-to's this is the place!

Printing man pages

Another simple question (hopefully).

How do I print man pages?

Ouch! Point taken

I shouldn't have been so quick: I enter man rm | col -b | lp and I get "request id is Deskjet-6 (1 file(s))" and nothing else. What part am I missing.


Would help if I turned on the print server
A somewhat faster Windows box
