Can someone explain me, how can I print properly on a matrix printer from my C program? Printer is a small cheque printer STAR SP200 (20 chars wide). I made a print file with one format - all constants and variables - everything works fine! But that foolish printer wants me to generate several empty rows, so that user can tear the slip away - and I cannot understand, how to do it! My form ends on line 13. I tried to add a constant on line 25 and this constant is filled with spaces - no effect. I placed a variable on line 25, filled it with spaces from the program - also no effect. The only hack, that I found is to place an unprintable char into this varuiable - then it skips empty lines and "simulates" printing. So I have a solution - but it is a dirty hack :-( I should add, that the printer is connected to a PC and I use 3812 emulation from Mochasoft. May be there is a proper solution of this problem? Actually may be this list is not the optimal place for such a question, but people is pretty helpful here...... TIA, Jevgeni Astanovski Sampo Bank Tallinn, Estonia
