in thread clear print queue in windows

This seems to be a non-trivial problem, but maybe some of the more Win32 minded Monks can help, using the following resources as some inspiration:

  1. Re: Printing in NT
  2. List of resources of VB programmers wanting to control print jobs
  3. Stack Overflow question about controlling printing in Windows using Perl

It seems like using Win32::API in conjunction with the winspool.drv DLL and calling SetJob with a null job will do the trick, but I can't give you the exact code that would accomplish this
