#37 : Landscape printing with Win32TextPrinter

«Hebrew transformation» bug

Tuesday, 20. September 2005 21:10.

prnprint.py prints funny results on a Brother MFC printer. After recovering from your first impression that some hebrew spammer took control over your printer, you notice that in fact each letter is on the right place and mirrored against its horizontal axe. Funnily enough, on my Samsung ML-1200 and on a Lexmark Optra PS (visualized using Ghostscript) the same code prints correct results.

Is this a bug in the Brother printer driver? Or does Win32TextPrinter use some non-catholic combination of settings which are tolerated by some drivers and not by others?
