Hand Written Postscript Examples

It is easy to send raw postscript files to a postscript printer on most computers. First bring up one of those old black DOS windows. Then only the command below is required:


/* COMMENT- send a file out to a PS printer on the LP1 port */
copy file.ps LPT1


If you happen to have a network printer in another room the process is more complicated. Again all these commands are done in the DOS window. You must use the 'net' command. In this example my printer's name is '\\KPRPS083A1\KPR-BW-A195':


/* COMMENT- remove any previous printer net link */
net use LPT1 /delete
/* COMMENT- link LPT1 to my network B&W printer */
net use LPT1 \\KPRPS083A1\KPR-BW-A195
/* COMMENT- send a file out to a PS printer on the network */
copy file.ps LPT1
