How can we gain control of printer using php? I mean gain control as in, choosing the right printer from our php page and send the document directly to printer. I want to bypass the print dialog box that will appear when we print from web browser.
By the way, I've checked the PHP.net to check on printer functions (http://my.php.net/manual/en/ref.printer.php), it contains outdated links. I am really not sure how to get about using the function. I've already tried to download the php_printer.dll file from some website and unquote the extension in the php.ini file but can't get the printer_open() function to work, Perhaps someone can point to me where to download the right file or the right steps to do in order to use it .
Really appreciate all the info i can get. Thanks
