Hoped I can hold two channels active simultaneously, since the printing speed is much slower than the serial data transfer speed - thus it's not neccessary to buffer anything. With this extra serial bus traffic, however, I won't play with this idea. I'll keep a simple 256 bytes buffer and use that. Only one more question that I quickly realised to ask. When printing on an MPS compatible printer, is it O.K. to send a CHR$(17) _before any activity in order to print in small/capital set, or do I have to send this char _whenever I start a new line on the printer? (In short: what is the preferred method to print in small/capital set on an MPS (or in a wider scope: a Commodore compatible serial) printer?)
