This seems really basic although I've never done it, and apparently it's not so straightforward.
What OS are you using, and what exactly are you attempting to print? Simple text?
My guess is that using GUI (qt, wx, tk, etc.) module would support something like that. (Also, IDLE seems to have primitive printing, and it's written in tk, so it's definitely possible.)
