That should work on an IEEE bus, yes. The Basic Aid (BAID) package (I
think) has a SPOOL command that can print disk files in this way. I
tried the same on the 64 with the serial bus but that did not work.

With BAID I think you had to specify a SPOOL command without file name
to close the disk file. It did not monitor the bus in any way.
