Subject: Re: Redirecting printer output to a file
Since I have had many inquiries concerning this, it seems to be a topic
of general interest to the net: Many users of DOS-based PCs that access
the wide variety of public-access catalogs have had trouble when
attempting to "log" a search session in order to pull citations into
word processing programs or bibliographic databases.
I have had good results with a shareware utility program called PRINDIR,
which redirects output that would normally be sent to a printer to a
disk file, which generally results in cleaner files and less cleanup
afterwards. I do not know where this program is available via FTP (if
at all); however, what follows is the registration page from the user
manual so that those interested can contact the program's author. If an
FTP location is found, I'm sure that others would be interested .
