From the way how the code looks, I would say that this is essentially an Agfa program that was originally developped for PC, and then ported over to Amiga (with more or less success), taking the concepts of the PC workflow with it. The same also applies to the "bullet.library" which is actually an Agfa (compugraphic) library that was (rather poorly) ported to Amiga, and then, with lots of effort, fixed by Olaf.

As always, thanks for the insights!

Did this make it into the bug tracker?

A different observation for the CMD tool.  I'm sending the same number bytes each time but the CMD notify text is reporting an accumulation of bytes.   That is, the text says 172 bytes sent to CMD_File2 but in reality only 86 bytes were sent to that file.

Code: [Select]
5> run cmd notify multiple
[CLI 1]
5> CMD redirection of parallel.device installed

5> echo >PRT: "Test"
Redirected 86 bytes from parallel.device to RAM:CMD_File1
5> echo >PRT: "Test"
Redirected 172 bytes from parallel.device to RAM:CMD_File2
5> echo >PRT: "Test"       
Redirected 258 bytes from parallel.device to RAM:CMD_File3
5>

No, simply on the basis that it is fixed already. (-:

Any comment on an aRIN sequence where aRIN sends a reset  plus init sequence.  As it is now, it is possible that the printer could have some configuration set that does not get set back to the original prefs by init alone.  Init only sets mostly prefs but if user changes something outside of prefs then that printer code does not go back to default with aRIN alone
