ok i dont think turing is capble of printing pics but it can save them. this is how you can take a pic of part of the screen and save it in a file.


var picID: int %var for the

%stuff to make a pic of       
Draw.FillBox (50, 50, 150, 150, red)
Draw.FillStar (50, 50, 150, 150, green)
Draw.FillOval (100, 100, 50, 50, blue)
picID := Pic.New (50, 50, 150, 150) %spicfie a box a store the pic in it in picID
Pic.Save (picID, "mypic.bmp") %take a pic of the area in the spicfied box and save it as mypic.bmp

after it saves the pic you can always go in to paint and print it from there.

as for the reading the file stuff check out this link for info on that:

In TURING 4.0.3 on the run screen there is a print bottom which allows you to print if there is no button then type

setscreen ("buttonbar")

at the top of the screen
