1) New version 3.2 has been released

The new 3.2 version has been released
You can download it from
http://www.printfil.com/edown.htm . It can be installed in a PC where a previous unregistered version was expired.

Some of the new features:

  • 11 languages are available in a unique installer program, including English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Greek and others. The desired language can also be switched at run time.

  • Printfil now can check for multiple files to print using wildcards (for example c:\spool\file*.txt)

  • It's now possible to use how many fonts you want in a single print job.
    For example you can print labels including barcodes and textual descriptions.

  • chr(13) is no more ignored. It is now used to perform a CR. Customers of previous Printfil versions does not need to change anything in their ascii files, but it is now possible to emulate old printing techniques, like the strikeout. For example you can now print "TEST"+chr(13)+"----" to obtain the TEST string.

  • Chr(0) is no more ignored by default, but now you can specify in PRINTFIL.INI which character/string you want to ignore in your print jobs. Please refer to the Printfil manual for more information.

  • Added support for custom control codes: Double_Height, Normal_Height, Cpi12, Cpi14, Cpi15 and Cpi20

  • Some minor changes to have a better user-friendly interface.

2) Redirecting lpt output using prn2file

You can use Printfil even if your DOS application cant redirect the output over a file. You can use prn2file to do so. More informations are on the html Printfil manual.
