Hi all! First off, the recent improvements to JEMM386.EXE have made this memory manager workable for my hardware. I could not run with previous versions or the plain FreeDOS version! Excellent job! No more boot issues or system locks so far. The same is true with the DOSFSCK version 2.11c! Very good. The added counter for surface scans is a nice touch! I'm thankful for the updates.
My only remaining hurdle is with the PRINT command. The FreeDOS version doesn't want to work like the MS equivalent and is very, very slow in comparison when I use my Lexmark parallel port printers. The details: I have a software application that uses the PRINT command as its spooler for reports. Some of these reports are long, 30+ pages. I have to load "PRINT" resident in AUTOEXEC.BAT something like this: C:\DOS\PRINT /B:1024 /Q:4 /S:1 /D:PRN In other words, PRINT with some command line options. This is what the application wants per the software authors. The authors are long gone and I can't change it. I have to live with it. Failure to run this command line before launching the application brings "can't spool to printer" error message. Now, the following command line results in nothing going to the printer. The application thinks that all is okay because it sent the print job to the spooler and got no errors. The dianostics confirm this. C:\FDOS\BIN\PRINT /B:1024 ... The only way that I can print is if I use the above command line with no options, specifically: C:\FDOS\BIN\PRINT It prints but ever so slowly compared to MS PRINT and so slow that I really can't use it for anything but the shortest of reports. It can take two minutes to print a three to five page report compared to a minute or so with MS-DOS PRINT. Any way I can pass this on to the PRINT side of the project?? Anybody have any suggestions?? Again, can't re-code the application. Thanks! ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This SF.net email is sponsored by: Splunk Inc.
