I have a HP Deskjet 697c and I've tried printing my Pascal programs with it. Each time I've tried it only prints one line at a time (or two).

You've said: "I've tried printing my Pascal programs with it"

I deduct you're trying to print the source code of your programs, and you don't success.

Now, if you're trying to print FROM WITHIN your programs, that's quite different.

As I now figure out you mean the second variant, then I ask you:

1) ¿what are you trying to print (graphs or text)?

2) ¿what is what you guess to print and what is what you really get printed, if anything?

In your program you have to control the printer yourself. You have to provide carriage return and line feed. That's probably why you only see on or two lines.

Ups that's another matter.
What editor are you using and are you trying to print from within the editor ?.
Try these commands in dos

copy <path to sourcefile> prn
copy <path to sourcefile> lpt1

if these prints ok then your editor makes the garbage.
Could you tell us the programs name (editor) and if you printing from dos or windows.

If you're working into IDE, in the "File" option of upper menu bar, you have the "Print" option.

But, as the default printer driver (to use bold letters and other things) is for Epson, you must tell IDE to NOT send escape sequences: in the "Printer setup" option, check out the flag "Send highlighting escape codes".

Save the pascal file, and then go to the diretory in the dos prompt before you compile the file and type:

type filname >prn


that should print out the source code...

Hope this helps,

Just only for curiosity: ¿what were the results when you tried to print your program from within the IDE?
