Disk No: 2654 Disk Title: LQMatrix PC-SIG Version: S1.0 Program Title: LQMatrix Author Version: 4.3 Author Registration: $19.50 ($24.00 overseas) Special Requirements: Epson LQ 24-pin dot-matrix printer or compatible. LQMATRIX is an editor for user-made characters known as "soft fonts" for Epson LQ 24-pin dot matrix printers and compatibles. It comes with the editor, a downloader, LQ.EXE, and over 40 complete fonts including a wide variety of common fonts, serif, script, etc., as well as old English, Gothic, two Cyrillic fonts, and classical Greek. LQMATRIX and fonts are designed to use the text mode for printing user-made fonts. In contrast to graphics, this mode is as fast as using the default letters and thus is useful for printing long texts. In the text mode, the printers accept a `soft' font into memory and use it rather than the built-in `hard' font. In fact, when so instructed, it can switch back and forth between the two. Thus, if you have written a paper in English but wish to cite examples in the Greek alphabet, you can `download' (send to the printer) the Greek font (greek.lqn on this package) and use it when necessary. For those who wish to use the various ready-made fonts for different purposes (or just for variety), all you need is the LQ.EXE program. With it, any of the premade fonts can be downloaded to the printer. For those users who wish to create their own fonts, modify those already supplied, or create a small number of special characters for a specific task, LQMATRIX.EXE provides just the environment you need. It's an easy-to-use matrix program with many features that permit the user to create characters, store them in a file, and download them to the Epson LQ family of 24-dot matrix printers. With it, you can design Draft, NLQ (10 cpi), and proportional characters. PC-SIG 1030D East Duane Avenue Sunnyvale Ca. 94086 (408) 730-9291 (c) Copyright 1989 PC-SIG, Inc.
INSTALLATION FOR LQMATRIX [Jimmy Paris Software] This batch file will 'unpack' all of the fonts that go with LQMATRIX, the best font designer available for 24 pin dot matrix printers. The self-extracting files can be run separately. To direct them to a different drive use the parameter: /eX:, where X is the desired drive. If you are unpacking onto 5 inch floppies you will need two of them. The first will receive the fonts in LQFONT.EXE and a copy of LQ.EXE, the downloader. The second will receive the remaining fonts and another copy of LQ.EXE. If unpacking to a hard disk a \LQMATRIX directory will be created. LQMATRIX is a Shareware program and frequent users are expected to register. It is copyrighted 1985-91 by J. David Sapir, 906 Old Farm Rd. Charlottesville, VA. 22903, USA (804) 295-5496. [The self-extracting archive program (LHarc) is copyrighted 1989 by Mr. Haruyasu Yoshizaki.] You can terminate the unpacking by hitting ^C (control C).
