We ran across a cool utility called Enscript. It runs on most all platforms, but is most useful on *nix systems. If you ever just want to print a text document, but don’t want to load up an editor, you can use Enscript.
Here is the GNU Enscript homepage.
For example, to print a document with no header with Times-Roman12, type:
enscript doc.txt -B -fTimes-Roman12
