2COL is a compressed print utility that will print 4 (or even 8 pages) on one
side of a sheet of paper in 2 column format. It is intended for dot matrix and
deskjet printers. Make sure your internal printer switches are set for
Epson/Standard mode, not IBM mode. If your printer does not have an Epson mode,
you will probably need to use 17 char/inch (-W68). If you have a front panel
pitch selector on your printer, it must be set to Program mode. If you are not
sure about the front panel settings turn your printer off and then on
immediately before running 2COL. This should reset the printer to program mode.

You might want to consult PRINTERS.TXT to determine the settings for your
printer model before attempting any printing with 2COL.
