Printer capture from a MSDOS Clipper 5.2 application
Posted on 2011-10-20
Clipper 5.2, MS-DOS, Windows 7 32bit development machine.
I don't even know where zone will I be posting this question, but here it is.
I have the need of modifying a 25 year old application because of a couple of fields that grew up more than what we would expect.... you can't blame, it is 25 years.
Well, the thing is this software has a lot of reporting. I have this "epson" codes all over the place, and now I have the need to test all the reports because due the new widths on a couple of fields, it is very likely it will not fit the 80 characters in their matrix printer.
So, I'm looking for a software that allows me to capture the output from this DOS application so I can see that everything is ok.
Of course borrowing a printer and a bunch of paper would work as well, but I'm environment conscious. :)
Any recommendation is very welcome.
