If you do lpr -s to print a huge file to a local printer, it works fine.
But if you do lpr -s to print a huge file to a remote printer, it pukes;
it doesn't send the whole file through for some reason. In this case, it's
a 3Mb TeX dvi file, that's truncated ~2Mb through (no ulimit).
The man page mentions that lpd will accept arbitrarily large files from
remote sites; but lpr, for some reason, doesn't send the whole thing
through. Any ideas welcome!
The overwhelming consensus is to make sure that mx#0 is in *all* printcaps
that are in the chain. I tried it and it works like a charm! Thanks
