Subject: performance & integration of FXPRINTER

Lisp Version: Fugue.6

Description: '
FXPRINTER currently doesn''t follow the same conventions as the PRINTER package. It also is still quite clunky. We should compare its operations vs. the PRINTER package and fix the inconsistencies (it should make LISTFILES and HardcopyW work properly on the printer.)'
FXPRINTER should also default reasonably to 9600 baud, init RS232, etc.'

A new version of the FXPRINTER package has been moved to {PHYLUM}<LISPCORE>LIBRARY> along with updated documentation.  The Epson FX80 desk-top printer may now also be used as the default printing host. '

Unfortunately, with all the software/hardware problems I was having, the version of FXPRINTER (and .DCOM) which you recently placed on {PHYLUM}<LISPCORE>LIBRARY> was not without error.'
I would appreciate it if you would replace it with the newer versions which are on my directory.  '
I have copied FXPRINTER (& .DCOM) to {phylum}<lispcore>library>.'

AR 132 -- I decline this one.  I believe that BARRERA.PASA has'
        been hacking this package, and may have fixed the complaint.]
