Here is what the POST files do:

POST.EXE The POST program engine Version 2.1

POST.DOC The POST user's manual - ASCII text

USERPRN.BAT The batch file to print POST.DOC using POST

OPTIONS.DOC The POST options list

OPTIONS.BAT The batch file to print OPTIONS.DOC in landscape format

DIRPRN.BAT The batch file to print a local directory

LISTPRN.BAT A sample batch file to list source code of a file

POSTPRN.BAT A sample batch file to list a file or directory

POSTLOGO.PS A label written in PostScript (R) for your POST floppy

POSTLOGO.BAT The batch file to print the label

STATUS.PS A PostScript (R) program to identify your printer protocol

STATUS.BAT A batch file to get the protocol status

SETDTR.PS A PostScript (R) program to switch to DTR/DSR protocol

SETDTR.BAT A batch file to switch to DTR/DSR protocol

SETXON.PS A PostScript (R) program to switch to XON/XOFF protocol

SETXON.BAT A batch file to switch to XON/XOFF protocol

XONXOFF.COM A XON/XOFF protocol terminate and stay resident PC program
(this only works for com1:)

Note: All batch files are set up to use PRN: as the print device. If
Your configuration is different you will need to edit the files
or use the DOS MODE command to redirect your print device.

XONXOFF.COM is not a very reliable way of implementing the handshaking
protocol. If it is possible, you should use the parallel
printer port or use the serial port with DTR/DSR handshaking.
