in reply to Batch Printing in Linux

I needed to print UTF-8 text files...

Why not lpr *.txt?

I have also printed .odt files...

Why not lowriter --headless --convert-to pdf *.odt?

    Karl:

    Thank you for the additional options. I figured there would be other solutions which is why I threw in the YMMV. :)

    Why? 1. Lame, but, Perl practice. 2. Somewhere in the mass of posts that I read it was recommended to use Open Office to retain document formatting, so I went and figured out how to make that work and wanted to document a solution rather than repeat the general hints found in the posts. 3. Still pretty new to linux. 4. Retired and doing this for fun. No time constraints.
