FUNCTION

[ Top | Next ]

ListFile prints a file on a printer attached to your terminal's pass-through printer port.

DESCRIPTION

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

This utility simply turns on the terminal's pass-through printer port and prints a text file on an ASCII printer (such as a DEC LA-50) connected there.

EXAMPLE

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

Here is a session using ListFile to print the file gamma.seq on our ASCII printer.


% listfile

  LISTFILE what file(s) ?  gamma.seq

%

OUTPUT

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

The printer port is turned on, and gamma.seq is printed on the printer.

RELATED PROGRAMS

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

Replace, CompressText, OneCase, ShiftOver, DeTab, ChopUp, LPrint, and ListFile are the Wisconsin Package file utilities programs.

RESTRICTIONS

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

ListFile is only for printing text files, not for making plots. The printer must be turned on. The terminal and printer must be set to the same baud rate.

SUGGESTIONS

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

If you use ListFile frequently and you find yourself repeatedly typing the same command modifiers, you can save yourself this effort by creating a foreign command in your gcgmyinit.com file. See "Customizing Your Login" in Chapter 1, Getting Started in the User's Guide for help defining foreign commands.

<CTRL>C

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

If you need to stop this program, use <Ctrl>C to reset your terminal and session as gracefully as possible. Searches and comparisons write out the results from the part of the search that is complete when you use <Ctrl>C.

PARAMETER REFERENCE

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

You can set the parameters listed below from the command line. For more information, see "Using Program Parameters" in Chapter 3, Using Programs in the User's Guide.

-NOHEAding

suppresses the heading at the top of the print-out.

-PAGe=64

number of lines to print on each page.

-FORMFeeds

sends a form feed instead of several blank lines at the end of each page. Sending blank lines or a form feed at the end of each page positions the paper to begin printing on the next page.

-BLAnklines=4

sets the total number of blank lines to send at the end of each page if -FORMFeeds is not on the command line. Sending blank lines or a form feed at the end of each page positions the paper to begin printing on the next page.

-NOMARgin

doesn't send blank lines or a form feed at the end of each page This causes printing to be continuous across the page break, without a margin at the top and bottom of each page.

-ENDLINes=14

sets the number of blank lines at the end of the listing. The first page is shortened on the assumption that there were the same number of blank lines at the beginning.

-NOENDFORM

suppresses the form feed at the end of the printout.

-FILl=80

compresses the listing onto as little paper as possible. The words from the file are compressed together and shown on completely filled lines. You can set the length of the compressed lines with the optional parameter value.

-SPAces=1

lets you set the number of spaces separating each word if you are using the -FILl parameter.

-NOPASSthrough

suppresses the characters that turn the printer port on and off. The file appears on your screen.

-OUTfile=/dev/tty11

directs output to another terminal, device, queue, or file. The file will not have standard carriage control.
