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

If the printer is connected to your serial port, just use
SERIAL:MAKE-SERIAL-STREAM.  If you have a spooler running on the machine
you'll probably have to shut it down so that it closes its serial

You could also make a second namespace entry for the printer, specifying
"Type: ASCII".  Text sent to that printer will be converted to ASCII,
instead of being rendered using Postscript.
