    $VER: PutToPrinter 1.2 (1.3.2018)

    This is a simple ftp based solution to printing via my HP LaserJet Pro
    2000 color M251n. Whilst writen with that printer in mind it ought to
    work with any ftp based printer.

    It will print postscript and PDF documents direct, and will filter plain
    text via ghostscript to create a suitable postscript version.

    Version 1.2 now allows passing of plain text direct to the printer and
    also sets a small selection of configuration items. The configuration
    options depend on the printers web inerface, so success may vary from
    model to model.

    Set the following variables to define the domain name / ip address and
    any username and password required

         my $printerdomain = "printer";
         my $username = "anon";
         my $password = "bar";

    Call as

        "puttoprinter.pl [--copies n] [ --a5landscape ] [--plaintext [
        --landscape ] [--bold]] <filename"

    *   "--copies n" Print n copies of the document

    *   "--a5landscape" Feed a5 paper "sideways".

    *   "--plainttext" Passes the file through to the printer as plan text.
        No checks are made that the file really is plain text. Any new line
        are converted to CR/LF sequences.

    *   "--landscape" Only affects plain text, print the plain text in
        landscape mode.

    *   "--bold" Only affect plain text, prints the plain text in a bolder

    Create a simple ProAction GUI. Perhaps parse the printer status page to
    sync the proposed GUI with the current settings.

    A recent (>5.16) perl installation with Net::FTP File::Basename and
    File::Temp modules as well as HTTP:Request and LWP::UserAgent for
    setting options
