This tells the tty driver to do the translation for you.
Normally, stty(1) acts on standard input. But when printing,
standard input is not connected to the printer, so with '0<&1',
stty will act on standard output.

This could also have been done with:
	stty opost onlcr tab3 0<&1
	cat $file

But, strangely, this does not work with the ISC 386/ix parallel
port driver. At least not in 2.0.1. Solved in 2.0.2/2.2 ?
