PRINT command

Used to print text files, ACL log files, or other ACL project items that have been exported as external files – i.e., scripts (.aclscript), tables (.layout), or workspaces (.wsp). You can also print graphs generated as the output of commands.


PRINT {file_name|GRAPH}



Specifies the name of the file to print. For example, specify "C:\ACL Data\Sample Data Files\ACL_Demo.log" or "Sample Data Files\ACL_Demo.log", or omit the path if the file is in the working folder. If the path or file name includes spaces you must enclose the file_name value in double or single quotation marks.


Specifies that a graph previously output as the result of a command should be printed.


The printer used is the default printer configured in Microsoft Windows. To change the printer you need to change the default printer in Windows.
