printing from dos program from cpu with only usb port and usb driven printer is a big problem to dos programs. this should be addressed by the printer manufacturer on how dos programs can use usb printer as the parallel port on board on cpu new release is scarce and may be phased out.
the suggested solution is to print the dos printing job to a file and run third party software.
this is not a good practice as it is not automatic printing similar to a dot matrix printer. the best solution is make the printing job sent to the usb printer without passing through a third party software.
it should operate similar to dos to dot matrix printer without any stopover.
can anybody with through knowledge of this problem. surely the vast dos users will be happy to put your suggestion in practice.
