Tux Paint has print capabilities under Linux/Unix, Windows, Mac OS X and
BeOS. The code is platform-dependend, however.
Under Linux/Unix, I take advantage of the NetPBM tools to convert a PNG
(spat out via libPNG) into a PS, and then pipe that to 'lpr'. Pretty simple.
Under Windows, Mac OS X and BeOS, there's actual printing code.
Check the source! :^)
Note: Apparently, at the moment, there's been some random reports of
blank pages printing under Windows98. *sigh* Stupid OS. >:^(
