Or as a further option is to pipe the output to todos.

e.g. if using lpr : cat text.fil | todos | lpr
or : cat text.fil | todos > text.fil.dos
lpr text.fil.dos

note : there is a fromdos command as well.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
