Subj: Printer Test Message           Conf: (2) Quik_Bas
   I uploaded another version from a different board, but I
don't think it got out.  For some reason, my posts from
that board rarely do.  This one is more reliable, anyway.
I tested the last one (using the INT 17 initialize printer
function) on my other system (happens to be a Tandy
1000TX; that may say something) and it would not set an
error bit with nothing at all hooked to the printer port.
  This one, at least, works on both of my systems.
By the way, I forgot something.  If ya use the thing,
flatter me and give me an itsy bitsy little credit.  Other
than that, use it any way you want...I personally
guarantee none of it came from anyone else's work;  I
don't have time to read anymore...|-}
