I've completed a semester of computer programming in Python and one thing we didn't learn was how to send data to a windows printer instead of the screen.  I've also asked this question in one of the Python help places and received about three responses.  None of them worked.

I'm totally amazed that I seem to be the only person in the world that wants his output sent to a printer as that is what I've pretty much always done with the Basic programs I've written.  Mostly data handling and reports.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Also, is there any way to send a shell command to access some function of the basic windows operating system such as sort?  Or to do a DOS directory and send it directly to a file to be accessed as needed?

Thanks in advance.
