Handy emacs printing trick

emacs -nw myfile.c -e “ps-print-buffer” -e “save-buffers-kill-terminal”

By extension, you can keep stacking -e’s with interactive functions that take no arguments for as many commands as you want. I would imagine there is a way to pass arguments to the functions you list, but I haven’t found that yet. Also, it might be nice to be able to do something like -e “(+ 5 9)”, but I haven’t found the proper way to do that either.
