printer_open -- Open connection to a printer

Description

resource printer_open ( [string devicename] )

This function tries to open a connection to the printer devicename, and returns a handle on success or FALSE on failure.

If no parameter was given it tries to open a connection to the default printer (if not specified in php.ini as printer.default_printer, PHP tries to detect it).

printer_open() also starts a device context.

Example 1. printer_open() example

<?php

= printer_open("HP Deskjet 930c");
$handle = printer_open();
?>
