Actually the file is called file 0 because the commands used to print can
take multiple files at the command line. If you use, for example:

lpr thisfile thatfile theotherfile

then thisfile will be file 0, and thatfile will be file 1, etc...  I guess
if I really wanted to I could go hunting for that print statement and add a
+1 (just like that homework assignment about how to use arrays  haha)
one of the tiny perks of open source eh?  But I still cant get it to print..
even with esp... I must be missing something...
