My original message:
Could someone please tell me whether they have used the page-length
(pl) and page-width (pw) options in /etc/printcap with success?
If so, would appreciate you sharing your experience with me.
I have been trying (without any success) to set the options
for a variety of serial printers connected to Sun.
Here is one typical entry:-
It reached a point where I thought the problem was with the
printer but when I moved it to a PC, it works just fine from
softwares like WP and WS.
I am using just "lpr", no fancy stuff.
Thanks and I will summarize all responses.

The response from a few people was that you will need a filter
before the "pl" and "pw" options will work.
The options get passed into a filter specified by the "if=" entry,
i.e. filter -w<width> -l<length> .
In the process of writing such a filter now.
