Purpose: Converts IBM text-graphics characters into
ASCII characters that can be printed by non-
graphics printers.

Format: PRSWAP

Remarks: The IBM text-graphics characters (non-
standard ASCII 176-223 and 254) programmers
often use to make their screen displays look
more attractive cannot be handled by many
printers. PRSWAP.COM is a memory-resident
program that translates these characters into
presentable-looking ASCII substitutes.

PRSWAP should be loaded only once until you
power down or hit Ctrl-Alt-Del. If you
intend to use it regularly, the best place to
put it is in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
