This time for sure!

After trying out my previous suggestion I realised that it didn't quite
work.  This should do the job:

Change line 41 in a2ps-site.cfg which by default is:

DefaultPrinter: | #{lp.default}


DefaultPrinter: > PRN

The other thing that needs to be done to make printing work is to turn off
version control.  This can be done on the command line as such:

a2ps --version-control=off file.txt

If you don't do this, a2ps will try to make a backup of the PRN "file",
which of course fails because PRN isn't really a file.

You can turn off version control by default by adding the following line to

Options: --version-control=off

The latest:
In cygwin, cat filename >Lpt1  (or PRN) does work,
provided that the file ends with a Form Feed character.
a2ps, while the output to a file is correct, still not see the printers. 
(I did not edit a2ps.cfg or a2ps-site.cfg.)
I am very new to unix. 
Now I can proceed only if one would tell me precisely 
that which lines should I replace in 
a2ps-site.cfg, with what, to give proper info to
a2ps, so it can use Lpt1 and PRN for printers.
Many thanks for any help.
Dr. Pastor.
