Well, there is a reliable "os.popen()" for windows around there. But if
you want to print in windows from python, that will be useless. Unless
you've got a "lpr" for windows (?)
The quick way: output to a text file, then run "notepad /p filename".
The advanced way: use the win32 module from pyhton.
