This library has been tested to work under DOS version 3.3, and Clipper
version Summer '87.
*Clipper is a registerd trademark and product of Nantucket Corp.
This library allows Clipper programmers to tailor thier software to the more
frequently used functions of 100 different printers. The function name is
DD_PRINT(), and accepts two parameters.
The appropriate syntax is:
"x" must be a numeric value in the range of 1 - 100. It specifies which
printer's codes you wish to access.
"y" is a character string value, and indicates which printer attribute you
wish to receive.
The number used for the parameter "x" matches the brand and model printer, as
