Thank you for the swift response Matthew, but, maybe I wasn't clear.  Or
perhaps you answered a little too swiftly.

As described:
<<< printer_list -- Return an array of printers attached to the server
Description
array printer_list ( int enumtype [, string name [, int level]])

The function enumerates available printers and their capabilities. level
sets the level of information request.>>>

I was hoping someone had some success with this and could share.
Michael

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
