SYNTAX

[d:][path] PRINT [/D:device][/B:buffsiz]

[/U:busytick][/M:maxtick][/S:timeslice][/Q:quesiz]

[P][/T] [pd:][ppath]pfilename(...)

OPTIONS

[d:][path] Specifies the drive

letter and path of the

PRINT command file.

/D:device Specifies the print

device. If not used, PRN

is assumed. The /D

parameter can only be

specified the first time

the PRINT command is

invoked.

/B:buffsiz Specifies the size in

bytes of the internal

buffer. The default is

512 bytes. The /B

parameter can only be

specified the first time

the PRINT command is

invoked.

/U:busytick Specifies the number of

clock ticks until the

print device is

available. The default

value is 1. The /U

parameter can only be

specified the first time

the PRINT command is

invoked.

/M:maxtick Specifies the number of

clock ticks for which the

print device is available

to the PRINT command. The

default is 2, and the

value can be between 1

and 255. You need only

specify the /M parameter

the first time the PRINT

command is invoked.

/S:timeslice Specifies the time slice

value. The default is 8

time slices, and the

value can be between 1

and 255. The /S parameter

can only be specified the

first time the PRINT

command is invoked.

/Q:quesiz Specifies the number of

files you can place in

the print queue. The

default is 10, and the

value can be between 1

and 32 files. The /Q

parameter can only be

specified the first time

the PRINT command is

invoked.

/C Specifies which file or

files are to be removed

from the print queue

(canceled). The preceding

file name and all

subsequent file names on

the command line are

canceled until a /P

parameter is encountered

on the command line.

/P Specifies that the

preceding file name as

well as any file names

following the /P are to

be added to the print

queue, until another /C

occurs in the command

line.

/T Removes all files from

the print queue. Cancels

printing of the file

currently printed,

displays cancellation

message, and advances

paper to the next page.

[pd:][ppath]pfilename(...) Specifies the file(s) to

be printed.

EXAMPLES

PRINT BUSINESS.RPT

prints the file BUSINESS.RPT.

PRINT BUSINESS.RPT *.BAS

prints the file BUSINESS.RPT as well as all files with the

extension .BAS in the current directory.

MESSAGES

Cannot use PRINT - use NET PRINT

PRINT cannot be used with a network fileserver; use NET PRINT

instead.

Errors on list device indicate that

it may be off-line. Please check

This message appears only when a new PRINT command is entered

while the device is off-line.

File not in print queue

The file you specified to cancel is not in the queue.

List output is not assigned to a device

The device is not valid; enter the PRINT command again, this time

using a valid device name.

xxxx error on file yyyy

While trying to read data from file yyyy, a disk error (type

xxxx) occurred. Check to make sure that the disk drive is ready

and issue the PRINT command again.

UNDO

To cancel all files in the print queue, enter

PRINT /T

To remove specific files from the print queue, use the /C

parameter. For example, the command

PRINT /C ACCTS.*

removes all files named ACCTS, regardless of extension, in the

current directory from the print queue.

NOTE

The first time you use the command, you will be asked to

specify the name of the device; do not use a colon at the end of

the device name. When you add files to the queue, they must be in

the current directory. However, you can change to another

directory and then add files to the queue. The PRINT command

increases the resident size of DOS by approximately 3600 bytes.
