      SCO Unix3.2 has a bug in thier lp driver that ignores 8 bit data !!!

 They are aware, as I notified them about 5 months ago , or whenever Unix
was released.  They are suppose to have a fix for it now, or soon anyway.

The fix is called unx162 but wasnt shipping as of last week yet.

This is a severe problem for anyone developing software that uses printers!
