Abstract:

A program to simulate an upper and lower case line printer on an ASCII terminal with a line length of at least 132 characters is described. The program assumes that the usual FORTRAN carriage control tape is mounted in the line printer. Carriage control for top of form 1 and skip one line 0 are supported but overprinting is not supported. The program is useful when a liner printer is not available or when an upper and lower case line printer is needed and only an upper case line printer is available. Potential users are warned that it takes a very long time to print a listing at 300 baud. Author
