i have some problem with the "printer" function. 
I have installed an WAMP system with, PHP 4.2.1 
i have added the "php_printer.dll". 
when i want to connect to a printer i receive the message, 

Warning: couldn't connect to the printer [h#?/htm] in c:\apache\htdocs\printer_1.php on line 4 
if ($submit) { 

$handle = printer_open(); 
printer_write($handle, $text); 

When i try to list the attached printers with 
if ($auflisten) { 
$var_dump = printer_list(PRINTER_ENUM_LOCAL); 
while(list($key, $value) = each($var_dump)) 
echo "$key, $value"; 
i only receive 
0, Array1, Array2, Array3, Array4, Array5, Array6, Array 

what is the problem ? 

Is it a bug with PHP 4.2.1
In a older version of PHP i had no problems

thanks a lot

the problem is, that PHP 4.2.1 does not find the default printer in the system. 
I tried this 
$handle = printer_open();
printer_write($handle, $text);
with php 4.0.6 and it works well, also in PHP Info in section "printers" there is my default printer listet,

with PHP 4.2.1 not

Appears to be an abandoned PECL extension.

If I talk approximately the exceptional printer and its functions then I constantly advocated canon printer because earlier than bought any printer we have to check its function. Canon printer has specific capabilities like Canon Pixma MG5620 is a successful system with a clean set-up process and an appealing set of capabilities. it's far very supportable with the consumer and the great factor is the Canon customer support team is always a gift for customer help. and you additionally go to this link for greater statistics.

I have a Canon Printer and at some point in the past when I was putting in printer derive it changed into showing mistakes code 1931. while I discovered canon customer service and that they eliminated this error and gave me an exceptional answer you could touch them and speak you issue.
