I'm hoping to deal with this by executing the code on the server,
converting the decoded digital TIF to PNG, and writing it to a file.
Then it can be viewed in a browser and printed from there. Can this
Zebra LP 2844 be printed to outside of perl? It looks like both of
you are printing from within perl. I should really have it working
from a browser so it's really simple. Firefox lets you specify the
exact print command. Do you know of any command-line tool or command
that might print to this Zebra?
