Check out docs for the variable lpr-command
,----[ C-h v lpr-command RET ]
| lpr-command's value is "lpr"
| Documentation:
| *Name of program for printing a file.
| On MS-DOS and MS-Windows systems, if the value is an empty string then
| Emacs will write directly to the printer port named by `printer-name'.
| The programs `print' and `nprint' (the standard print programs on
| Windows NT and Novell Netware respectively) are handled specially, using
| `printer-name' as the destination for output; any other program is
| treated like `lpr' except that an explicit filename is given as the last
| argument.
| You can customize this variable.
| Defined in `lpr'.
