How To


Unix Commands/Postscript Printing

HOW TO: Print PostScript files in UNIX from an NT Machine # file:
* NOTE: Remember: UNIX is casE-sensiIive!


-telnet to rc
-login, password
-from the command-line:



rc # pwd
rc # /home/myhome


Make sure you're at home

rc # tcsh Gives us doskey-like functionality:
-prompt changes to ">"
-arrow keys for command-line
-backspace key to edit command-line
-command-line completion with tab key

rc > ls -la | more


Should see all your dirs plus hidden (-a) files

rc > cd StuffDir/MyStuff


*.ps files in /home/myhome/StuffDir/MyStuff

rc > lp filename.ps


Prints PostScript files to the default UNIX printer

rc > lpstat


Gives you the status of your print-job
rc > exit Issue this command *twice* when finished with your session
rc # exit  


Unix Commands/Standard Printing

HOW TO: Print standard files in UNIX from an NT Machine file:
* REMEMBER: UNIX is Case SEnsitive!


rc # tcsh

Think of it as "turbo" csh


rc >

Changes default prompt to this
We want to print a file we think is named "ralph" something


rc > du -a | grep -i ralph

rc > /Docs/Oldstuff/VeryOldStuff/ralphsOldFile.lst

  Finds 2 instances of "ralph" - verify the correct one, and then print it:
rc > cd Docs/Oldstuff/VeryOldStuff/  

rc > ls -l ralph*
-rw-r----- 1 athiel staff 1377 Nov 28 11:29 ralphsOldFile.lst



rc > printer ralphsOldFile.lst



rc > lpstat /* Check on progress of print job



rc > hp5-206 chuckb.phs.wfubmc.edu!athiel 4142484 Nov 29 07:33
