Printing line numbers

Maybe this question is out there, but I searched and didnt see it.

To print my files I use
more filename | lpr -Pprinter

I would like to print my scripts with line numbers.

How do I do this?

Use cat instead of more - it has options to put in line numbers


%cat -n fine.scr |lp -dtpadc-5si

Options for cat :
-n Precede each line output with its line number.

-b Number the lines, as -n, but omit the line numbers from
blank lines.
