Welcome to I-Queue!

The preceding screen allows you to manipulate your current
network printing or "capture" parameters.

In general, the window at the bottom of your screen will
indicate the availalble function key choices.

Within the window, you may use the Up and Down Arrow keys
to move the selection bar or selection indicator (). For
multiple choice selections, use the first letter of the
desired choice or the left and right arrow keys to move
the selection highlight. For other input fields, press
Enter to edit the current setting.

CAPTURE PARAMETERS

"Print To" indicates whether you are printing to a network
print queue, a network file, or to your local printer.

If you are printing to a network print queue, "Queue Name"
indicates your current file server and print queue
selection. To change queues, move the selection indicator
to this row, and press Enter. You will be prompted to
select from available print queues on your current file
server. To select another file server press INS. If you
are not logged into the file server you select, you will be
prompted for a user ID and/or password.
*P
If you are printing to a network file, enter the name of
the file in the "File Name" field. If a file capture is
already in progess, the "File Name" field will indicate
"File Capture in Progress..." To close the current capture
file, move the selection bar to this field and press
Enter. "# Copies" indicates the number of copies of your
print job, between 1 and 255 to be printed.

"Setup String" is the character string that is inserted
at the beginning of each print job.

Press Enter to display this help topic: ^Setup Strings^

"Timeout" is a Yes or No selection as to whether the
network should automatically close the print job if no
print output is generated within the "# sec" specified.
*P
"Form Feed" is a Yes or No selection as to whether the
network should append a form feed to the end of your print
job.

"Expand Tabs" indicates whether the network should expand
tab characters in the output stream. Setting this to "No"
is equivalent to byte stream mode in NetWare's menus. If
Tab Expansion is enabled, you may specify the number of
spaces to be substituted for a tab. The DOS and NetWare
default is 8.

"Banner" indicates whether or not a banner page should be
printed before your print job. If "Yes", you are also
prompted for the text to appear on this banner.
*P
"AutoEndCap" is a NetWare feature, as to whether the
network should automatically close the print job when the
application program closes the PRN or LPTx device.

"Form Number" indicates the form number on which the print
job should be printed. The default is 0.

"Notify" indicates if a print server should notify you
when your print job has completed printing.

"Status" indicates whether a new print job should print as
soon as possible (READY), delayed indefinitely (HELD), or
delayed until a specified time (DELAYED). Only available
if the add-in program ONHOLD is loaded.

*B 3,Display Print Queues
DISPLAY PRINT QUEUES

Pressing F2 allows you to display and manipulate jobs that
are currently in the network print queues.

If you are currently capturing to a queue you will be shown
the print jobs for that queue, otherwise you will be
prompted to select a print queue. To select another file
server press INS. If you are not logged into the file
server that you select, I-Queue will prompt you for a Login
ID and Password.

If you submitted the print job, or you are a designated
Q_OPERATOR for the selected queue in NetWare, you can press
the Delete key to delete a job.
*P

You can also press Enter to display more information about
the job. Again, if it is your job, or you are a
Q_OPERATOR, you will be able to change the job's
parameters. Q_OPERATORs can even change the positions of
queue jobs or move/copy jobs to another queue or disk
file.

For more information, context sensitive help is available
for all screens.

*B 6,Command Line Parameters
COMMAND LINE PARAMETERS

To load I-Queue into memory, you simply issue the command
IQ. Once loaded into resident memory, you can activate
I-Queue by pressing its default "hot-key" combination,
-.

To control certain aspects of I-Queue's operation,
including changing the hot-key, you must specify command-
line parameters when loading I-Queue. The following
command-line parameters are currently defined:

/U Un-installs (or unloads) I-Queue from resident
memory.

/NR Runs I-Queue in non-resident mode. This is the
*P
preferred way to run I-Queue under multi-
tasking environments such as Quarterdeck Desqview,
Microsoft Windows 3.0 and Software Carousel.

/NE Tells I-Queue not to use expanded memory.

/NX Tells I-Queue not to use extended memory.

/ND Tells I-Queue not to use disk overlays.

/D Tells I-Queue to ignore expanded and extended
memory and use a disk overlay model.

/NU Tells I-Queue not to use "upper" memory blocks
(memory between 640KB and 1MB) provided by 80386
based memory managers like QEMM and 386-to-the-
*P
MAX.

CHANGING THE I-QUEUE HOT-KEY

The I-Queue "hot-key" is the key that you press to "pop-
up" or activate I-Queue. By default, this hot-key is
-. However, this hot-key may conflict with a hot-
key used by another application.

For this reason, the I-Queue hot-key can be remapped to
any combination of or and any alphabetic key or
function key. In other words, I-Queue can use any of the
following as hot keys: - thru -, -
thru -, - thru -, or -
thru -.
This hot-key can be specified on the command-line when
*P
loading IQ.COM, and changed at any time by re-executing
IQ.COM, with any of the following command-line parameters.

# Tells I-Queue to use instead of in
the hot-key.

A-Z Any alphabetic character from A to Z can be
specified to work in conjunction with or
in the hot-key.

Fxx Any function key (F1-F12) can be specified to work
in conjunction with or in the hot-
key.
Examples:
*P
IQ alone defaults to the - hot-key, or if
I-Queue has already been loaded, the hot-key is not
changed.

IQ #X tells I-Queue to use - as its
hot-key.

IQ Z tells I-Queue to use - as its hot-key.

IQ F1 tells I-Queue to use - as its hot-key.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
