Print a file in the background, while you run other DOS commands.
print [options] [[d:][path]file] [[d:][path]file] [...]
The file that you want to print.
Specify the name of the device to print to. If not given, Print
will use the default LPT: device.
Set the size of the buffer, in bytes, in the range 512-16384. The
default is 512.
The number of clock ticks, in the range 1-255, that Print is to wait
for the printer to become available before printing the job.
The maximum number of ticks for sending a single character to the
printer, in the range 1-255.
The number of clock ticks, in the range 1-255, for the background
spooler process. The default is 8.
Larger numbers will speed up printing but slow down other DOS programs.
The number of files that will be allowed in the print queue, in the
range 1-32. The default is 10.
Remove all files in the print queue. Terminates the job that is
currently being printed.
Cancel jobs in the print queue.
If this is used with a list of file names, only those files
are removed from the queue. If this is used alone, all jobs
are cancelled (although the current job isn't terminated.)
Add a file to the print queue. If this precedes a list of files,
only those files are printed.
You may use /P and /C together on the same command line.
If no options are given to Print, only files, /P is assumed.
If no options and no files are provided, print displays the contents
of the print queue.
