User Code: jPrn

How many Java developers know there is a class called 'printJob' in the AWT package? It's a very useful class that is used to print a file via Java. By using this class, I developed my own piece of software for printing a text file.

JPrn is only used to print text files (*.txt, *. java, *.c, etc.). Please, acquiesce this Achilles.

In future enhancements, I plan to support all files.

JPrn File Infrastructure

There are five files in the download, namely BaluDocPrn.java, jPrn.java, balu.jpg, map.jpg, and this one (jPrnReadme.txt).

How to Run

Step 1: First compile BaluDocPrn.java
Step 2: Then compile jPrn.java
Step 3: Finally, run jPrn.java

jPrn
