The (located in the directory you installed it to) program will redirect the printing of text files from LPT1 to any file that you name. 

Installation: Using the Hydro-CD "Install Program" to a program directory or a directory that is included in the path statement. 

Program Execution: To run prn2file program type from the DOS prompt PRN2FILE file_name (where file_name is the name of the file that you want the print redirected to, i.e. report.txt). The text file created can be viewed/printed from any Windows TEXT editor. Please note that each time you print a report it will be appended to the report.txt file. You can delete the report.txt file after you have printed the file or rename it if you want to save it.
