how to configure the lp system to filter files passed to it

I registered a printer hp123 on Sun Solaris Server.
I think my printer is expecting a carriage return and linefeed combination at the end of each line (DOS standard), but unix files only have linefeeds at the end of each line.
How can I configure the lp system to filter files passed to it?
Thanks in advance.

Something of :

/etc/lp/interface/
or
/var/spool/interface

This is where your interface scripts are. I don't have the possebility to look at exact location right now.
