I have several old DOS programs which I still use for various reasons (eg Wordstar 5). I also have several programs I've written using GWBASIC and MBASIC. These programs were all for a DOS environment and USB wasn't probably even thought of then. I want to keep using these programs but modern computers and laptops tend not to have serial or parallel ports that older printers can connect to. Also at some point my trusty parallel DataProducts Laser printer will probably give up the ghost. The programs I have written myself contain lots of control codes to control print size, formatting etc and are written for an IBM ProPrinter emulation.
So the question is "How can I redirect/force/get around, to make my DOS programs to print to a USB printer"
Thanks ... John N
