Printer driver example source?
Could any good soul provide me with a GNU-compilable C-only example/skeleton source code for an Amiga printer driver? I just can't make heads or tails of the assembler-ridden mumbo in the Dev Wiki :-(

Re: Printer driver example source?
There was an example printer driver source (pure C with gcc as compiler) in SDK 53.15: SDK:Examples/Printer/HP_DeskJet_CMYK Don't know why it was removed or if it still works. (edit: I still have it, if you want it.)

Re: Printer driver example source?
Thanks for the tip, found the old SDK on Hyperion's website! Hm, looks like the entire Printer drawer is now gone from the SDK examples. I wonder why this is the case? Has anything been changed in the OS4 printing infrastructure that renders these examples unusable?

AFAIK nothing has changed. Except the HP_Photosmart driver I compiled is based directly on those sources. And includes extra code to send job end commands. As well as having a less obscure name people can relate more too. I can't believe is was back in 2007 when I started that! :-)
