Note: For these reasons, it is important that you limit the 'X_File' variable to 5 letters &/or numbers.
If you have DOS 5.0 or later you can make printouts of the screens produced by this program. The screen that I recommend you use Print Screen on is W. Print screen will work throughout the program. However, before you can print graphics screens, you must install the DOS GRAPHICS driver. The syntax used is:
GRAPHICS [printer] [[d:][path]filename] [/R] [/B] [/LCD] [PB:id]
printer : Identifies the type of printer attached to your system. Select from the list in the next screen.filename: The name of the data file that contains printer information./R : reverses white and black in the printed image./B : prints the background in color on color printers./LCD : adjusts the aspect ratio of the printed image to match the LCD screen on the IBM PC Convertible/PB:id : id parameter can be set to either STD or LCD. Specifying /PB:LCD is the same as using the /LCD switch. Table of Printers for GRAPHICS append listDESKJET Hewlett-Packard Deskjet.GRAPHICS IBM Graphics print, IBM proprinter, most dot matix.HPDEFAULT Hewlett Pcakard PCL printerLASERJET Hewlett-Packard Laserjet
If these do not work please read your DOS manual for a complete listing. If you still have problems, please contact your local MS DOS computer dealer.
