print-destination-unix: preference variable

Default value: !lpr "%f"

Under Unix, this variable tells Epsilon how to print. If it names a file, Epsilon will print by simply writing text to that file. But if it starts with a ! character (as is usual), Epsilon will interpret the text after the ! as a command line to execute in order to print a file.

Epsilon substitutes the file to be printed for any %f sequence in the command line. For example, if your system requires you to type "netprint filename" to print a file, set print-destination to !netprint %f and Epsilon will run that command, passing it the file name of the temporary file it generates holding the text to print. The print-destination can include any of the file name template sequences, such as %p for the path to the file to print.
