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,
