Information about “PRINTER UTILITIES”

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

  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.
