Hmmm... "it is fairly simple" for some definition of 'simple' involving 55 lines of example code. (Not all of which may be neccessary to my current purpose.)

That's a little more work than I was hoping for, but I suppose I could get invested in doing that with Win32::API under the heading of "write once use many".

But sheesh! All I want to do is squirt a few lines of text at the printer. Someone please take me back to linux and:

      echo "Hello World!" | lpr -oraw

But anyway, thanks for the lead. If nothing more straight-forward comes to light. I'll probably end up using this approach.     Much gnashing of teeth is heard...
