Emacs provides commands for printing hard copies of either an entire
buffer or just part of one, with or without page headers. You can
invoke the printing commands directly, as detailed in the following
section, or using the @samp{File} menu on the menu bar. See also the

The basic Emacs facilities for printing hardcopy can be extended
using the Printing package. This provides an easy-to-use interface
for choosing what to print, previewing PostScript files before
printing, and setting various printing options such as print headers,
landscape or portrait modes, duplex modes, and so forth. On GNU/Linux
or Unix systems, the Printing package relies on the @file{gs} and
@file{gv} utilities, which are distributed as part of the GhostScript
program. On MS-Windows, the @file{gstools} port of Ghostscript can be

To use the Printing package, add @code{(require 'printing)} to your
init file (@pxref{Init File}). The usual printing options in the menu
bar will be replaced with a @samp{Printing} submenu, containing
various printing options. You can also type @kbd{M-x pr-interface
RET}; this creates a @samp{*Printing Interface*} buffer, similar to a
customization buffer , where you can set the printing options. After
selecting what and how to print, start the print job using the
@samp{Print} button (click @kbd{mouse-2} on it, or move point over it
and type @kbd{RET}). For further information on the various options,
use the @samp{Interface Help} button.
