	Yes you can (at least I think so - I never tried myself). You need system() 
call in order to run lpr (or any other Linux program) from Windows 
application. Run "man 3 system" to read more about system() call.
	First, use LoadLibrary() to load glibc (please note that this will fail on 
Windows and will work only on WINE). Then call to GetProcAddress() to get the 
address of system(). Now you should be able to call it via the pointer you 
now have.
