Question

I need to find a way to print a rich text document through unix. I don't care how it's done--i.e. some sort of conversion to a different format (postscript?) or through some sort of software.

Any reasonable, quick solution would be appreciated.

Thanks.

If I was going to do this I would send the document to a MS box and print using MSWORD. I'm lazy to do an all UNIX solution when an MS one is easier Smilie

I agree that a MS printing solution is the better way to go and I've already figured out a way to accomplish that. But, unfortunately, I'm not permitted to go that route and must print rich text through unix.

So, any ideas?
