How do I create a NULL printer that really doesn't print.
Posted on 2004-10-06
I have a program that generates an ASCII copy of a printed output, but I don't want the hardcopy. I could pause the printer and empty the queue occassionally, but I'd rather create a Null printer which I could print to without the queue filling up. Does anyone know how to create a virual printer that doesn't kick out error messages and doesn't put ink on paper?
I have seen a wiring diagram for a 25pin adaptor that immitates a printer but just ditches the print job, I was wondering whether there is a sofwtare solution. Using Windows 2000 / WinXP.
