You didn't specify what platform you are running on, but the first
problem I see with the above is... well stdprn is not defined.  Did you
perhaps mean:

    sdtprn = io.open('stdprn', 'w')
    stdprn.write(...)

However on a Linux system that will simply open and write to a file
called 'stdprn' in your current directory.
