There is more (at least when using apsfilter, but CUPS should be
capable of this, too): You can print ANY file using the lpr command,
e. g. 

	lpr somepicture.jpg

or even

	lpr myprogram.c

in which the printout may have been added "pretty printing" with
different styles for keywords, strings, preprocessor directives
and so on.
