OK  Eeeevery one can print ascii in dos with Pascal. That is very easy. But how do you print graphics in DOS???  Is there a universal driver (like a vesa type thing) or do you need individual printer drivers or what do you have to do????  

Can you please refer to source code...
Thanks very much

You need a driver for every printer type you want to access, since every printer uses a different language to print graphics. I have a short driver for an HP500C written in C. If you are interessted in this driver send an email to rbr@physik.kfunigraz.ac.at

thank you very much for your effort rbr.

Where can I find these drivers???  Can I safely only use like 10 drivers and print on all the different printers available or how does it work.

Can't I use say a Epson lx666 driver that will work with most Epson Printers????  Does these different driver-rules thing apply even if i only want to print low-res black and white???

Thank you very much again for responding.

I don`t think that you will find drivers, you have to write them yourself. I think if you write a driver for one EPSON it will work with many other EPSON (and non-EPSON printer which can emulate an EPSON) printer too. Look in your manual to see how a graphic information must be send to your printer and again send an email to me and I'll send you a driver.
