7.4 Printing Letters

You can print a hard copy of a letter by piping a letter to a printer command. To do this, use the command form:

|number lp

at a mailx prompt. (The | symbol is called a pipe.) For example, to print a copy of letter 2, type:

& |2 lp

and press Return. If a letter number is not specified, mailx pipes the current letter to the printer. For more information on piping, see "2.2.5 Redirecting and Piping Command Output".
