mode /LPT1: /status should have been successful. On my system is replies that LPT1 is not redirected. Can you print at all (outside of Perl) from the CMD prompt? There have been issues in teh past with USB printing from the cmd line. If that is an issue you may have to update your drivers.

    Viz:
         >print temp.txt
         Unable to initialize device PRN
    
    Also, Control-P (am I remembering correctly how to toggle printing of console activity?) doesn't work either. It appears as "^P" and nothing happens. Hit return and you get: "'►' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

    Is there any other way to print from the console?

    "you may have to update your drivers". Which drivers? USB?
