Look in the user's guide that came with Mathematica.  In mine, Chapter
12 describes Mma's ancillary programs.  One of these is called `psfix'
and needs to be installed in your executable path (or your PATH
environment variable should be changed to include
$MATHDIR/$MACHINE/Display which is where I found it).  On a unix
system, it can be used like

psfix file | lpr

to add the necessary PostScript code for the printer to interpret.
Look in $MATHDIR/man for the manual pages for this and other Mma
programs.
