If you've got a plain dot-matrix printer, you've probably envied the
impressive output your friends with laser printers are able to obtain from their
computers. However, the high cost of these printers probably precludes you from
obtaining one, unless you're into serious desktop publishing. This leaves you
with no choice but to put up with mediocre-quality output for your letters and
documents. Or at least it did, until ImagePrint came along. This program
allows you to get high-quality output from some popular models of dot-matrix

ImagePrint is a shareware program which normally requires a registration fee
from all who continue to use it beyond a trial period. However, a special
arrangement has been made between the publisher and BIG BLUE DISK to allow our
readers to use the program without obligation. The version of ImagePrint on
this disk contains one high-quality font, "Cubic." If you choose to voluntarily
pay a registration fee to the program's publisher, you receive (in addition to
the support all registered users get) six more fonts. Other fonts are also
available, as described in the README file. (From the DOS prompt, type the
command "TYPE README" to see it on your screen, or "COPY README PRN" to print it

A full documentation file is included on this disk to show you how to use
ImagePrint. It is in the file MANUAL.DOC, which can be listed to your printer
with the DOS command "COPY MANUAL.DOC PRN". It is formatted for standard 8 1/2
x 11 paper. (DON'T use ImagePrint to print out its own documentation, since it
contains characters which are recognized by the program as command sequences
[this can't be helped, since the documentation obviously must describe what
command sequences are available!] Anyway, you probably won't know how to use
ImagePrint until you see the documentation anyway, so just print it using the
old-fashioned DOS COPY command.)

For the daring free spirits among you who wish to try the program out before
reading the documentation, you can start it with the command (from the DOS
command line, NOT within BIG BLUE DISK's menu) "IMP80 CON:". This sets it to
printing out whatever you then type from the keyboard. You must press ENTER
after each line for it to print out. CTRL-Z or F6 at the beginning of a line
terminates execution.

  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:
