Duh...
i have eagle already :\
 I dont have printer. In order to print layout i must get a print from others. If my file was .jpg or .bmp it would be easier to mail them.

As mmcp42 suggested, you can Export it as a PNG image, which can be opened by just about any image viewer, including a web browser.  You can export the full board, or just the part you are zoomed in to on screen.

Or do CAM output as postscript.  Which is likely to be the most accurate.
(Though, EAGLE does do a very good job of "printing" actual size board layouts.)

This is only valid if they have a PDF print driver installed.  I always assume the very minimum, meaning someone might not have that.

EAGLE has PDF output generation in its "print" command whether or not you have one of the special PDF print drivers installed, if that's what you meant.  Postscript too (separate from the Postscript CAM generation I mentioned before, apparently.)

Being able to print the resulting .pdf file is more common.
