There are several possibilities:
a) If you can select your TEK graphics, you can copy it onto the clipboard,
paste it into a drawing program (e.g. MacDraw), and print it from there.
Disadvantage: Graphics usually looks bad.
b) You can produce an EPSF (encapsulated postscript) file on your workstation,
download it via ftp and send it to the Laserwriter.
Disadvantage: quite non-intuitive.
