lpr-bash

http://lpr-bash.sourceforge.net
'lpr-bash is a replacement for the "lpr" command found in lpr(ng), CUPS, and other Unix printing systems implemented as a shell script. Originally designed for to run on a LinuxFromScratch, it should work with virtually any flavour of *nix. Its advantage over CUPS or lprNG is that when using Cups or lprNG, you have an open port; if security is a greater issue than network-transparency, 'lpr-bash' may be useful for you.
