Goal

This article provides sample code on how to modify the rwlpr.sh print control file so that a PostScript printer can generate reports with special fonts such as Barcodes or nonloaded Windows fonts.

NOTE: The steps provided to prepend fonts conflict with PDF subsetting.
- To workaround conflict, a new ORACLE_HOME must be installed to configure for printing.
