Is it a tip escape/command?
What does it mean?

What is dumping core? tip?

This is my printcap for an Dec Ln03r Scriptprinter:

lp0|local laser printer:\
       :lp=/dev/cuaa2:\
       :rw:\
       :of=/usr/local/bin/lpof:\
       :fc#0000374:fs#0000003:br#38400:\
       :xc#0:xs#0040040:sf:sb:br#38400:\
       :mx#0:sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:

I'm doing in rc.local:

cat -u /dev/cuaa2 >/var/log/PS-log

and if you want to watch messages coming from the ps-printer
you can always do:

tail -f /var/log/PS-log

and print using lpr.
