    Yes, there certaintly is. You have to output bytes to ports 0378h,
& 037Ah [assuming that the sound source is in LPT1]. I have some code to
do it, and I'll see if I can find it for you.

H| I need a suggestion for my printout.  I need more than 80 columns, so I have
 | set the printer to condensed (132) print, but QB45 only sends 80 chrs per
 | line, then wraps to the next line.

If you're using LPRINT statements, inserting the line WIDTH LPRINT 255
will do the trick.  Make sure it's executed before your first LPRINT.

Actually, 132 instead of 255 would work, but I recommend this for all QB
programs which use LPRINT - QB's line wrapping can be a real pain, and
this gets rid of it.

If you're opening a file and printing to it, you have a couple of
options.  The best is to use WIDTH #n, 255 - where n is the number of
the file.  Place it right after the OPEN statement for that file.  It
will not have any effect if the output is going to a disk file - only if
it's going to the printer, which should be what you'd want.

You can also specify a device instead of a file number, but this isn't
as reliable if you allow your users to select the output device.
