Contents of the CITOH.DOC file


This file contains numerous utilities for the C Itoh 8510A Prowriter
printer. I have compiled these over the last couple of years. Some of them
came from bulletin boards, and many of them I wrote myself using Debug and
the assemble option. I have worked out most of the bugs in these programs
but am sure that I didn't get them all. If anyone finds any glitches, I'd
appreciate a note.
