I need initiating print on a 3D printer via USB

I think it would be fun to implement a rudimentary version of Octoprint that can receive a gcode file and initiate a print on my Prusa i3. What are the requirements for initiating a print on a 3D printer via USB?

In essence Octoprint buffers a GCODE file then streams lines of that code to the printer obeying  flow control.

He will need (some of) the same API.
