Is there a way to send a data stream to a printer via lpt1 without using the printer.print method?

Thanks

I don't think that printer.print guarantees LPT1.

Instead you can do this:

open "LPT1:" for output as #1
print #1, "Text to output"
print #1, "This on the second line";
print #1, " still on second line";
print #1, chr$(12); ' form-feed
close #1
