Capturing Lpt1

DOSPRINTER runs under Windows, and allows you to print from a file to any WINDOWS printer. You can print to network printers, USB printers, and even all the latest printers that have "Windows Only" written all over them!

Current version:  11.25 - If you don't have this version, feel free to download a free upgrade!

Breaking News !!!  DOS Printer can now capture lpt1: directly!!

DOS Printer can now capture the lpt1: port directly even if your DOS Program cannot print to a file!!**
**This may not work on all Operating systems or on all computers - follow the link for details ...


Even NEWER!! - Create your own "Virtual Letterhead"!!!

Dos Printer can now create and use "Rich text Files" as "Virtual Letterhead".  This means that you can create a "letterhead" (using color, text and Graphics!!) which DOS Printer can use as a background when generating reports.  Your DOS Programs can now produce very professional and modern looking documents for either email or printing!

NEW - Create pdf Files from DOS !!

DOS Printer can now create (and email) pdf Files from your DOS files!!  You don't need any pdf generation software - DOS Printer has it all built in !!!

NEW - Scripting built in !!

Dos Printer can now use letterhead or redirect a report to email based on scripts that you include in the document!  Eg.. include the characters %DP:E2 and Dos Printer will automatically email that file as a pdf attachment!  see the Help file for details!


You can even FAX directly from DOS !!

DOSPRINTER is a little programme that sits in the system tray and monitors for the presence of a certain text file. If that file exists, the file is opened and printed using WINDOWS mechanisms to any WINDOWS printer that you specify. It acts just like a "virtual printer driver".

Would you like to try the most useful utility I've ever used ?

ClipMate makes you more productive by making the windows clipboard work better.  It adds the functionality that Windows leaves out, starting with the ability to hold more than one item!  (The regular Windows clipboard holds one item at a time.)


ClipMate holds THOUSANDS of "clips" for days, weeks, even years if you need it to.  And you can organize, edit, re-format, print, combine, search, and manage your data.  You can even encrypt sensitive information like credit card numbers.  We've even thrown in a spellchecker with thesaurus.

Do you have a need to keep often-used (or seldom remembered) scraps of data around for easy pasting?  Do you often need to move many pieces of data from one application to another?  How about answering questions on a mailing list or help desk?  Do you wish there was an easier way to make screen captures or prints?  Or an easy way to clean up those >> marks and BAD FORMATTING in a great joke that arrived by e-mail before you pass it on?  Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Clergy, Genealogists, Help Desk Staff, Engineers, Programmers, and Internet Marketers of every sort, depend on ClipMate every day to make their work easier.
