PrintFile for text files

Post by Pablo César » Fri Feb 24, 2017 11:58 pm

When I was just a Clipper user, I always had this desire to be able to print to any printer, choosing to: print in text mode in dot matrix (which is the cheapest but otherwise noisier) and graphic mode.
Over time I convinced myself that as Windows "evolved" and the right choice was to stop printing directly on the print server.

Generate text file, in my opinion, still very useful, practical, safe and fast.

This application that I make available to you, serves to print text files.

Its HELP shows you the options you have. It's a menu/help. 8-)

The interesting thing is that they can make use of the two modules: one for printing and for automatic selection of current language.
These modules can be used in your projects and can change anything you want.

If you make improvements, I'd like you to share with us here in the forum.

This Screen is to let it recorded the print configuration about that file. Its save a INI file with the same name.

For you testing make your own text file and save it. Parameter with full path is allowed.

In another day, I will describe what this application does with all it options. (I will re-edit this message for that)

I hope you like it. :P

Attached files was removed due new release more ahead of this topic.

:o (Thanks for advicing me, I haven't noted)
I made a mistake in selecting the file compatible with the sources.

Sorry, that was not my intention. :oops:

Dave, you need not have been so ironic.
You know I share a lot here in the forum ...

I made some mistake when selecting the file and posting and you could have been nicer, as I've always been with you ... :mrgreen:

Rajeev, what do not you understand ?
How to use the application? Does HELP not help you understand ? (Important for me to know)
Or did not you understand how to use fonts that were not attached before ?

It's not what it looks like !
You were very ironic because you mentioned executables (in the plural).
Maybe mentioning another case ...

Years ago I posted my print program which detects printer commands and can print bold, italic condensed, etc.
