I tried sending ctrl+n to the printer, but it had no effect. A cursor-down should do it - that's at least the code for all other Commodore printers I know. > A related note: I got a 8-bit ISA card by National Instruments that > implements an IEEE-488 bus.

I recall from long ago hooking an IEEE-488 speech synthesiser to a PET. It was sort-of working from Basic but not entirely reliable, probably due to Commodore's extensions to the IEEE protocol. I don't recall if a disk was connected at the same time. > Marko -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert - rhialto@ --Soep van de dag, wat zal dat zijn \X/ xs4all.nl --wat kan dat wezen, beter maar het ergste vrezen -Boy Bensdorp Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
