Printing a PDF file without using LotusScript shell function

I am using the LotusScript shell function to print a PDF file.

--> shell("AcroRd32.exe /p /h file.pdf")
Is there another way to do that, not using "shell"?
There's probably a way to do it using OLE automation, but I don't know the class name and methods (if any) for the Acrobat reader.
