plain text printing with java
I'm trying to make a program which prints out to a dot-matrix printer. This means I cant send the printer a picture to print - but some plain text and command codes.
I've been looking on the internet for a while and have had no success. Every piece of code I've found so far takes a string and turns it into a picture to send to the windows spooler.
My dad keeps telling me its easy in Basic, and I refuse to allow him to gloat about Java being worse than Basic due to my inability to print plain text!
It doesnt help that I dont have the actual printer to test on :rolleyes:
I'm sending the printout to the Generic/Text only printer on windows, but I dont think this should be affecting anything (my dads Basic programs work fine this way)
