    Linux already includes a parallel port printer driver (lp). Unless you need
    to deal with a so-called 'winprinter' (controllerless / GDI printer),
    you don't need any special C/C++ code. Virtually all standard printers
    are supported by Ghostscript -- you can use Ghostscript to create a
    printer filter and make any printer look like a PostScript printer.
