This routine is called LPRINT (load lprint) which provides the three commands LPRINT, BYE and TAB. LPRINT directs everything that would normally be seen on screen to the printer.

In fact the "OK" which confirms execution of the command is the first thing to be printed. The diversion continues until you enter BYE which switches the computer back to normal screen display.

A typical use might be to list your own programs; the sequence would be :-

LOAD lprint
LOAD program
LPRINT
LIST 1st-word
LIST 2nd-word
;
;
;
LIST last-word
BYE

TAB is a modified version of TAB as shown on page 75 of the ACE manual and works on both the screen and the printer, hence :-

: HELLO
16 TAB ." Hello"
;

would cause. Hello to be displayed near the centre of the screen or, if in LPRINT mode printed near the centre of the paper.
