I'm not familiar with OS/8, but what I do for RSX-11M is to attach a
Unix serial line to a DZ11 line and within RSX I have a printer queue
which uses that DZ11 line for output.
What I need to try as well is to use the simh lpt device and see if
that will also work. I guess 'att lpt /dev/tty05' could do the trick.
