Re: PDF printing from the command-line again

If anyone's interested, Postscript printing also works with this method, assuming the ghostscript support files, also available on Edward Mendelson's site, are in the vdos directory.

With 'LPT1 = "PDFtoPrinter.exe" #LPT1.PDF' in CONFIG.TXT, the only 
XyWrite command you should have to use is TY.

Also, why would you issue a bare *Windows* command from the Xy command 
line? At a minimum you would need to prepend DOS/NV/Z /C ....
