Use the open office API to print more complex documents on windows (MS Word, Excel type data)
May 28th 2004 : I've got 0.98 together with all the planned features coded, it just needs some testing before I release it (oh, and the docs need redoing too ).
I've rewritten the Win32 printing code so that the basic ASCII text printing routine uses Edgars Binan's Win32::Printer module and added OLE printing subs (accessible through print_command) to print via IE, Word and Excel.
February 16 2004 : I'm still here :) I've added some OLE functionality
to the windows code for the next release, this adds support for
printing through MS Word, Excel and Internet Explorer. I'm currently
working on some xs code to add list_jobs functionality to the windows
release, so there are some good things coming up.
October 11 2002: Version 0.97 released. I've changed the windows printing so it should work better with windows 2000/XP.
December 6 2001: Version 0.95 is now available. I've added a routine to allow users to select a specific print command to use. This is intended primarily to allow windows users to print Postscript easily by using Ghostscript.
