WinPrint is capable of printing your files with page breaks,
headers and footers (including page numbers, file revision
date, and current date), using all of the capabilities of
Windows and your printer.
WinPrint takes full advantage of the Windows Spooler program
to allow you to get on with other work while your files print.
To install WinPrint just copy the WINPRINT.EXE file into a
directory that exists in your PATH statement.
You can start WinPrint by double clicking on the WINPRINT.EXE
file name in the MS-DOS Executive Window or by choosing
"Run..." in the MS-DOS Executive File menu.
GETTING STARTED AND THE HELP SYSTEM
The help system, like the rest of WinPrint, has been designed
to be easy to use yet powerful.
Most of the features of WinPrint are described in detail in
the help system.
To invoke the help system either press the F1 key or click on
the "F1=Help!" menu item.
To get help on any of the menu items provided by WinPrint,
simply select that menu item in the "WinPrint Help" window.

The documentation file, WINPRINT.DOC, may be printed by
WinPrint! The best way to do this is to use the "Factory
Default" configuration settings. Use the File...Open Setup...
menu item if "Factory Defaults" is not the current
configuration. Depending on your printer, you might have to
change the text font so that the info box at the bottom of the
WinPrint main window indicates a lines per page setting of at
least 58 and characters per page setting of at least 75.
