First make sure that you can generate PostScript output.  That's what
a2ps does.  Just put it in a file (e.g. redirect stdout).  Then get
GSview or something and look at it.  If it's PostScript then a2ps
works and you are done here.  Anything else is off-topic for

Printing from Cygwin is difficult.  You'll have to read the Cygwin FAQ
and mailing list archives.  I don't even bother, I just generate a
PostScript file and use GSview to print it.
