Printfil 5.7 Ranking & Summary
Printfil 5.7 description
Printfil 5.7 offers an effective tool to print on Windows printers and PDF export. Printfil will allow you to print ASCII text files using any printer with a Windows driver. The file can be generated from a DOS/WINDOWS application or a UNIX/LINUX application, if it resides on a file system that is accessible from the Windows box (NFS, SCO-VisionFS, Samba and others).
If you are developing host based applications (like Unix) and your customers are using them with a Windows Terminal Emulator, You can stop to fight with transparent-print characters and different settings for different printers. All You need is a shared file system and PRINTFIL.
- Preview printing
- Include logos or other images stored in separate files
- Colorize the text
- Print A4 landscape sheets instead of printing on dot-matrix 136-column printers
- Print to USB, GDI, Windows-only and Virtual printers installed on the Windows Control Panel
- Send the print jobs via fax (using any third-party fax software acting like a printer - i.e. Microsoft Fax - or a multifunction - all-in-one - printer)
- Print to networked printers without having to "NET USE" a LPT port
- Use special fonts (barcodes, for instance) as well as normal characters
- Exporting the print jobs in PDF format, with or without user intervention
- Print to ANY printer installed in the Windows Control Panel, including USB, GDI, Windows-only and Virtual printers
- Send print jobs via e-mail by using your own e-mail client program, with or without user intervention
- Use a single, customizable set of escape sequences for ALL printers, regardless of make, model and emulation provided (or no emulation at all, as for Virtual and Windows-only printers)
- Print complex jobs to legacy printers in RAW mode (including drawings and graphics) without going through the Windows driver and without changing the original data flow
- Archive a copy of all the captured jobs in a directory of your choice
- Print your jobs to multiple printers simultaneously
- Improved Windows 2008 Server management, including Terminal Server installations.
- On some Windows systems, the Windows OEM Code Page used to convert DOS (OEM) characters into their Windows (Ansi) counterparts does not match the codepage used by your own source DOS program, making accented letters and other national symbols being misinterpreted. Now you can easily select which OEM Code Page Windows should use to convert the source text, simply by the Configuration -> Standard Printfils dialog. Please find more info in the FAQ: Can I print characters in my DOS Code Page ?
- Better recognition of the Copies control codes when using HP-PCL escape sequences to drive a generic Windows printer in GDI mode. On some particular cases before, Printfil could print more unwanted copies of the same document.
- Improved management of the Ascii-8 (backspace) control code when printing in GDI mode. Now it correctly works even if a legacy program embeds a chr(8) to move the printhead backward after sending other printer control codes in the same row.
- Now the Configuration -> Guided Printfils function is automatically run each time youll install a new Printfil version in evaluation mode. Registered Clients upgrading their Printfil installation can still run it manually by the Printfils menu if they want.
- Some other minor improvements.
- Pentium 133 MHz
- 8 MB RAM
- 2 MB HDD
