print-destination: preference variable

Default value: "lpt1"

Whenever Epsilon for Windows doesn't use a standard printing dialog but prompts for a device name or command, it records the name here.

If the print-destination variable begins with the ! character, Epsilon interprets the remainder of the value 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. It can also include %t, which substitutes the name of the buffer or file being printed (which will be different from the name of temporary file with the text to print). It may be used as a title or heading.
