Thanks for the tip to create a file and print with external tools. I need
to write a program to extract PO Boxes from a county voter list to send out
post cards inviting each voter to sign my petition in a central location at
one minute intervals to reduce the crowds. One of them will be to term
limit the local mayor. So I thought to generate the cards one at a time
but your way can work.
