Hi Peter, This effect, looks like the staircase effect on some older printers, it was remedied by interchanging the carriage returns and linefeeds on the printer driver.

It should be something like - CHR$(10);CHR$(13) Derek ----- Original Message ----- From: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Wednesday, February 18, 2004 8:50 AM Subject: [ql-developers] curses library > > Hi, > > when porting a new textbased webbrowser to QDOS, I have again run into > problems with the C68 curses library.
