The reason you can not do this is simple.  PHP runs on the server side not 
client side.

All,

I'm trying to send output directly to a printer without the user clicking
File>Print on their browser.  I'm using PHP Version 4.2.2.

I've looked it up online
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.printer-list.php and even 'google'd
it, but didn't find much.

Has anyone used this?  I couldn't get it to return anything on a windows or
linux server running Apache:  var_dump( printer_list(PRINTER_ENUM_LOCAL |
PRINTER_ENUM_NETWORK) );

Am I on the right track?  Any feedback would be great.

Michael
