LPRINT and LPRINT USING Statements

Purpose:

To print data at the line printer.

Syntax:

LPRINT [list of expressions][;]
LPRINT USING string exp; list of expressions[;]

Comments:

list of expressions consists of the string or numeric expression separated by semicolons.

string expressions is a string literal or variable consisting of special formatting characters. The formatting characters determine the field and the format of printed strings or numbers.

These statements are the same as PRINT and PRINT USING, except that output goes to the line printer. For more information about string and numeric fields and the variables used in them, see the PRINT and PRINT USING statements.

The LPRINT and LPRINT USING statements assume that your printer is an 80-character-wide printer.

To reset the number of characters that you can print across the printed page (assuming that your printer is wider than 80 characters), see the WIDTH statement.
