Topic: Create postscript and ghostscript in Windows

I've got a file printing from the console (Linux box) straight to the printer.
That is how it works:
1. The reports call OUTPUT STREAM {&STREAM-NAME} THROUGH VALUE = /usr/local/bin/stdprint > /dev/null 2>&1
2. The file above (webserver/usr/local/bin/stdprint) has line code:
(cat $1| groff -t -p -me -U > $$.ps; printpdf $$.ps) - that I believe creates postscript file and calls: printpdf
3. File above (webserver/usr/local/bin/printpdf) has line code:
gs -sDEVICE=bj200 -q -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=$$.ps $1 << eod quit eod lpr -Pcanon $$.ps rm -f $$.ps - and it prints fine.

The questions are: How to get it printing from Windows?. How are the windows/DOS command line to replace: (cat $1| groff -t -p -me -U > $$.ps; printpdf $$.ps) AND
gs -sDEVICE=bj200 -q -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=$$.ps $1 << eod quit eod lpr -Pcanon $$.ps rm -f $$.ps

Thanks,
Carlos.
