If all else fails, you can write a Unix command to do it and call the Unix
command from the print command of a print share. Then you "print" a file
from dos with the source directory on the first line, and the destination
directory on the second, and the deed will be done. You can make a little
dos batch file to assemble the file to be printed, map an lpt to the share,
and copy it to the lpt port.
