Printfil also allows: ; include logos or other images stored in separate files; use specialist windows fonts (barcodes, for example) as well as normal characters; colorize the text; preview printing; print to ANY printer installed on the Windows Control Panel, including USB, GDI, Windows-only and Virtual printers; print A4 landscape sheets in place of printing on dot-matrix 136-columns printers; send DOS print jobs via fax by using any third-party fax software which acts like a printer - eg. Microsoft Fax, or a multifunction - all-in-one - printer; export print jobs in PDF format, even with encryption and password protection, and send them via e-mail by using your own e-mail client program or a SMTP server, with or without user intervention; use a single, customizable set of escape sequences for ALL printers, regardless of make, model and emulation provided (if any, as for GDI printers); print complex jobs to legacy printers in RAW mode (graphs, drawings) and FAST print on matrix printers (like in the DOS age); archive a copy of all the captured jobs; print to multiple printers simultaneously. All this without changes to your applications. If you've host based programs (like Unix) to run on a Windows Terminal Emulator, you can stop battling with transparent-print characters and different settings for different printers. All you need is a shared file system (NFS, SCO-VisionFS, Samba, ...) or a Terminal Emulator, and Printfil.
