    Maybe this is a FAQ, but I didn't find it, so... Anybody knows how to
simulate a printer, connecting a modified cable to capture data sent from
a computer to a printer? I have an equipment that send logs to a printer
and I wanna kill the printer, using a Linux box to grab the data and send
it to a postgres database server. I downloaded the user mode parport
driver and will try to make a program to see if it fits my needs, but if
anybody has a better solution... :)
