=head1 NAME
C4::Print - Koha module dealing with printing
use C4::Print;
The functions in this module handle sending text to a printer.
=head2 remoteprint
&remoteprint($items, $borrower);
Prints the list of items in C<$items> to a printer.
C<$borrower> is a reference-to-hash giving information about a patron.
This may be gotten from C<&GetMemberDetails>. The patron's name
will be printed in the output.
C<$items> is a reference-to-list, where each element is a
reference-to-hash describing a borrowed item. C<$items> may be gotten
from C<&GetBorrowerIssues>.

# set the queue to "file" (or " file", if real queues aren't allowed
# to have spaces in them). Or perhaps if $queue eq "" and
# $env->{file} ne "", then that should mean "print to $env->{file}".
