I can't test on windows right now, but in cvs version, printfile is
described in the documentation:
(%i1) ?! printfile;
-- Function: printfile (<path>)
Prints the file named by <path> to the console. <path> may be a
string or a symbol; if it is a symbol, it is converted to a string.
If <path> names a file which is accessible from the current
working directory, that file is printed to the console. Otherwise,
`printfile' attempts to locate the file by appending <path> to
each of the elements of `file_search_usage' via `filename_merge'.
`printfile' returns <path> if it names an existing file, or
otherwise the result of a successful filename merge.
and is working correctly with wxMaxima on Mac OS X.
