15.8 Other printing functions

On GTK+ and Motif, printers can be added, removed and configured via printer-configuration-dialog . On Microsoft Windows, the equivalent functionality is on the Printer Control Panel. On Cocoa, printers are configured via the System Preferences.

A simple printing API is available via simple-print-port , which prints the contents of an output-pane to a printer.

The Hardcopy API also provides a means of printing plain text to a printer. The functions print-text , print-file and print-editor-buffer can be used for this.
