8.6 Checking PostScript Printer capabilities

Following is a PostScript command file that can be used to get a PostScript printer to output a number of useful pieces of information that are needed to set up a printer icon under Windows properly. It was printed from Wordpad, in Win95, through the Generic / Text Only printer driver with the following instructions:

  1. Start, Run, type in Wordpad and press Enter.

  2. File, Open testps.txt

  3. File, Page Setup, Printer, select Generic / Text Only, click Properties

  4. Click Device Options, select TTY custom, click OK.

  5. Click OK, then set all four margins to 0; click OK.

  6. Click File, Print, OK.

This could also have been printed with /usr/bin/lpr on a UNIX command prompt. The file prints Test Page and some printer statistics below that, as follows.

    % filename: testps.txt
    % purpose: to verify proper host connection and function of PostScript
    % printers.
