Shellexecute – Printing with the default application

This script prints the file in the first argument with the windows default application.

Example:

If you save the code in the file print.py:

print.py test.doc -> Opens Microsoft Word (if it is installed) and prints the file test.py to the default printer.

print.py mytextfile.txt -> Same. But prints with Notepad

from win32api import ShellExecute
from sys import argv

ShellExecute(0, "print", argv[1], None, "", 1)
