yes - for Solaris, etc.

       print_screen              mc0    ps   print contents of
       prtr_off                  mc4    pf   turn off printer
       prtr_on                   mc5    po   turn on printer

screen's documentation only mentions the last two (pf/po).  It probably
filters out the mc0.
