On the other hand, that "print to file called LPT1 and close
it when done to let Windows know when you are done" is better.

Hmm it is shareware.

You said tamedos helps to lower WinXP CPU usage - not printer related.

on how to run stuff in Linux dosemu, but then on the other hand
they probably just keep using their ancient copy of MS DOS instead.

Interesting :-) If you still have sources, you can also recompile
using the free HarbourX Clipper clone, I believe :-). Dunno what
that will do with your 3rd party libraries, though.
