Printfil 5.18

Print from DOS-Linux programs to Windows printers, USB, GDI, PDF, e-mail, Fax
Printfil allows printing from DOS, Unix, Linux, host programs to any Windows printer, including USB, GDI, network printers, fax printers and PDF writers, without changes to the original applications.

You can set your application to print to an ascii file, or you can let Printfil capturing one or more parallel ports (PRN: , LPT1: to LPT9:), automatically redirecting your print jobs to any printer, even to a printer which is physically connected to the captured port or if no LPT ports are physically installed on your PC. Using Printfil, you can print ASCII characters with just a few clicks.

Main features:

  • 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
  • use your own, single set of escape sequences for ALL the printers, regardless of supported emulation (or no emulation at all, as for Virtual and Windows-only printers).
