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?

    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.


    There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...
