Well, yes this works for line at a time.
It doesn't work for character at a time
It doesn't, by itself, lock /dev/lp0 so that lpd waits.
Anyway, I don't want to bug people with "how can I write an app that

I was just interested in if anybody knew of an off-the-shelf answer.
It would appear that there isn't.
