The recent talk of printing in colo(u)r syntax-highlighted code
prompted me to look up how to do it in my editor of choice (despite
rarely printing code out!!!).

Under *NIX systems, assuming you have syntax highlighting for whatever
you are using (for Stata this could come from Emacs Speaks Statistics
(http://ess.r-project.org/) or Bill Rising's ado-mode
(http://www.louisville.edu/~wrrisi01/Stata/ado-mode_install.html)) it
can be achieved by using the ps-print-buffer-with-faces command.  Thus
you go to the buffer you want to print and...

M-x ps-print-buffer-with-faces

and it'll come off your colo(u)r printer with all the higlighting.

I can't comment on how to do this under Windows or Mac systems as I
don't have access to either, but I did find the following description
(albeit a rather convoluted route involving exporting to postscript
then converting to pdf) of how to achieve this using Emacs under a
