Printing the Marked Files
(`dired-do-print') Print the marked (or next N) files. Uses the
shell command coming from variables `lpr-command' and
`lpr-switches' as default.
Since internally this is just a special case of
`dired-do-shell-command', you can use `*' and pipes like for shell
(setq lpr-command: "lwf")
(setq lpr-switches: '("-l -m * | lpr -Palw"))
to print with the shell command `lwf -l -m * | lpr -Palw', where
`*' will be substituted by the marked files. The `lpr-buffer' and
`lpr-region' don't know about `*' or `|', though, only Dired does.
