FPRINT's purpose is to print ASCII files, but with certain safeguards built-in for your convenience. For instance, a check will be made to see if it is indeed an ASCII file. If the program thinks you are trying to print a non-ASCII file, it will pause and tell you so. You then have the option to cancel your print request, or continue anyway. FPRINT also has a printer setup menu which can be useful for regular print jobs when you want specific printer settings. This can be very useful with the accompanying set of tables for using the Toshiba printer with Volkswriter Deluxe. The program converts the IBM codes into Toshiba codes and allows the user to use the various types of printer programs with ease. System Requirements: Toshiba printer with Volkswriter How to Start: Consult the .DOC and README files for directions and documentation. To run the BASIC programs, consult the directions in GETTING STARTED for your configuration. To run a program suffixed .COM or .EXE, just type its name, i.e., for FPRINTF.EXE, type FRPINT and press <ENTER>. Suggested Registration: $15.00 to $25.00 for Volkswriter to Toshiba.

FPRINT.DOC - 01.SEP.1984 - Westra-Danen Associates Inc. ======================================================= Program FPRINT was compiled under DOS V2.00, using The BASIC Compiler V1.00, and The DOS Linker V2.00. The program will likely work under other releases of DOS, but success is NOT guaranteed! More information is contained in FPRINT.HLP, which is also used by the program itself. You may delete the FPRINT.DOC file, but DO NOT DELETE FPRINT.HLP... ========================
September 1, 1984 Programs submitted by: Westra-Danen Associates Inc. 204, 12910 - 50 Street Edmonton, AB T5A 4L2 CANADA Phone 403/478-2985 There are two utility programs on this disk: BPRINT, a BASIC program lister, is offered under the FREEWARE, or user-supported software concept. A $25.00 donation is requested. All instructions are contained within the program. Given enough response, an extention to the program in the form of a line-number and variable-name cross-reference, will be added, along with some other enhancements. A version that uses the BASRUN.EXE runtime program is also available: see information contained in the program. FPRINT, a general-purpose ASCII file lister, is offered in the public domain library. It uses an external help file, called FPRINT.HLP. A .DOC file is also included with some general notes. A sample file to try the program is included under the name FPRINT.TRY.
