In article <2171 at wet.UUCP>, editor at wet.UUCP (Eric Swanson) describes his
printer problems:

Looks like your printer needs a different printer driver -- instead of the
<CR> <LF> it seems to want to be seeing (^M ^J in control characters) its
getting just  M  and  J  (text characters) with never a line-feed or a 
carriage-return to get it to flush its own buffer (i.e.,  to print) and
reposition its head for a new line.  ... Hope this is on the mark.
