The reason You're having problems with:

lpr -S localhost or 127.0.0.1 -P LPT1 FILENAME

Is that under WinXP (which you mention running), you need to enable lpr support under "services". Please note that lpr support is only available under XP-Pro, NOT under XP-Home.

And even then it's kludgy and hard to administer. It's easier to just dump into a file and spawn (Win32::CreateProcess()) something to do the dirty work of sending it to the printer, like maybe, ghostscript.
