raw stream to lgp2

How do I create a stream to a postscript printer that just sends
the chars without interpreting them? I can't seem to figure it
out, though it should be easy. Thanks
I don't know if this is the "official" way to do this, but
(send <printer> :hardcopy-device-stream nil)
returns a binary stream which gives "direct" access to the printer (by
way of the spooler, if one is running). If you want a character stream,
use SI:THIN-CHARACTER-STREAM on the result.
You can also always write postscript to a file named <whatever>.PS,
which, when printed using the Hardcopy File command, will be interpreted
as raw Postscript.
