I am currently taking my first class in Pascal.  My problem is I cannot print my output or print the program from the Turbo Pascal 7.0 editor.  I am using Win95 and a HP DeskJet printer.  My error is within the printer setup prnfltr path.  Pascal path is C:\tp\bin.  Please help.

Is is this a network printer or a locally connected one?

If it's a network printer, when you're setting it up, one of the questions is "Do you want to print to this printer from DOS programs?"  Answer 'YES'.  This is essential.

If it's a locally connected printer, make sure you're printing to the correct port.  The prnfltr program is normally located in the same directory as your pascal itself (i.e. c:\tp\bin).  Make sure the path is correct and the port selection is correct.

Is your problem REALLY with prnfltr or is it with your piece of code.

If you're using WRITELN or WRITE then you need to write to the LPT file rather than the obscure PRN file ie,

WRITELN(LPT,'This should get printed');

but remember to formfeed afterwards

Hope this helps

Sorry about my answer, it's wrong, it's been a while since I did anything in Pascal. I'ts not LPT it's LST ie

WRITELN(LST,'This is a message');

As far as I'm aware, printing to a HP DeskJet isn't a problem, certainly on a local connection.
