[REBOL] Re: Using a printer in Windows

From: sunandadh:aol at: 11-Jan-2002 6:13

Hi Philippe

It doesn't work for me on 98 either. (I don't have /Command). I'm wondering though if it is because my printer is on USB not LPT. I get nothing printed with then DOS commands: echo "hello" > prn echo ^l > prn (that's control plus lowercase L to get a page throw)

Both have advantages, in that you can offer a "preview mode" before printer. HTML has the edge for me in that it is easier to produce, and you can (as you say) use the Browse command. The document can then be read by most word processors and other applications. And Andrew has written a neat dialect for HTML. Sunanda.
