So, here is my problem: I need to make a program that directli prints the output (graphical). How can I do it with TURING.
Furthermore: what if the printer is not conected to the port of my comp (network printer).

you would have to use the parralell port i think, so it could not be done if it is a network printer to my knowledge. However, you could set the output to go to the printer somehow , in the prefrences or something ... but the code isn't possible

eh? Don't you just put : l1p1 (or w/e printer port)? But that's just for text.. and just for serial connection printers
printing pictures to networked USB printers... Maybe you could use system() commands to print out a file

if you want to send the string "Hello" to the printer). If you want to do this, open the file "LPT1" using the open statement and put to the file.
var file : int
open : file, "LPT1", put
for i : 1 .. 5
put : file, i
close : file

Yes this works for LPT printer ang for text, but I still can't print graphics, even with LPT prnter. I tjink that there must be a command that just sends tha active window to the LPT. If someone knows please tell me.

I'm sorry...that does not compute. Syntax error..
Seriously, dude...Turing doesn't have the capabilities to print graphics. And at the rate our dear friends at Holt are going, it never will.
out source through another language. Or convert all prictures into text format...PM Zylum for details...hehehe.

lol, yeah, find an ASCII character that represents a pixel the most... 8@# all works good. I just don't know if it will print in color
