Subject: SERIAL PRINTER TO P: R
Date: Sun Jul 30 09:32:17 1989


I JUST BOUGHT THE P:R: CONNECTION BY ICD. IT WORKS GREAT
WITH MY PRINTER, BUT I ALSO HAVE AVAILABLE TO ME A APPLE
IMAGEWRITER (FROM A MAC). THE MANUAL FOR THE P:R: MENTIONS A 
WAY TO CONVERT ALL PRINTING TO THE R: DEVICE. IT DOESN'T SAY HOW.
IT MENTIONS A SPARTA DOS FILE CALLED SPRINT. UNFORTUNATELY I AM
NOT AN OWNER OF SPARTA DOS.
WHAT CAN I DO. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY PD UTILITIES THAT WILL SWITCH
THE OUT PUT FROM P: TO R:?

                        THANKS
                        PETE

        I am not familiar with any public domain 
program you can use, but I'm sure there are such.
Check with the User group s listed elsewhere in
the At5ari ari SIG for about their disk libraries.
        An alternative may be to use the "print-
to -disk function found in most word processors.
For the filename, you would then use "R:"--
even if you have to backspace to do so.
        You may also want to use R2: for the
serial porrinter so you don't have to disconnect
your modem to use theit.

         Thanks for asking.
