Printing to PC's with no form feed

I downloaded the code to smbclient (client.c) and I can see the code
that adds the formfeed. Its enclosed within the precompiler
I'm guessing that the FORMFEED declaration is somewhere in one of my
system include files because I can't see it in the samba source
anywhere. This could account for your Linux implementation not
exhibiting my problem. In any case I get the formfeed even if I run
smbclient directly from the command prompt (i.e. bypassing lpd).
Thanks for your input anyway.

Just an idea: Are you really sure that the FormFeed adds the smbclient
itself? Isn't lpd" adding it there? This is a common problem. And here
smbclient really doesn't append such mess to it and it would be weird
that it would have this kind different behaviour depending on the OS.
