There’s another approach you could try. If you run Pp.xxx with the -n
option (to specify a printer name), the print filter will try to send
status info to a fifo named /dev/printers/yourprintername/status
You have to create the fifo before running Pp.xxx and also be
listening when it tries to send.

I want to tell the user what page is currently processed while printing with
Pp*-functions. I tried PpPrintStop to redirect the drawing events to the
graphics drivers but nothing appears on the screen.
After PpPrintStart the printjob continues with no problems.
What do i miss? Any experience with this function ?
