Since I don't see any code for printing on Macs, can anyone give any ideas on how to best go about doing so? IIRC, emacs (ugh) prints on macos. Anyone know how they do it? I've got a *lot* of learning coming up the next couple months it looks like... If no one else volunteers for porting the Print code, I will until someone more qualified steps up. I'm CC:ing the vim-mac list, as that is probably the proper forum for this topic.
P.S. If any of this makes no sense, please let me know. I'm writing this as I head to bed after being up FAR too long. ;)
