Dear Steve,=20

You are a wizard! cupsfilter really works.
"cupsfilter test.txt | lpr -P ps" printed a fine Cyrillic page for me.

It seems that cupsfilter requires CUPS to be installed but it does not
have to be running. I can live with that. I can probably use cupsfilter
as a filter in printcap combining it with gs, to emulate a line printer.

Thank you ever so much!
