One of:

open(PRINTER,">prn") or die "Can't write to aux: $!\n"; open(PRINTER,">lpt1") or die "Can't write to lpt1: $!\n";

should let you write text to be printed. But I know almost nothing about this.

    Thanks a lot. It gets the job done to a certain extent, but it still needs to have a few kinks worked out. But it gives me a great start, thanks.
