OSBYTE &05 (5) - Select the printer type.
On entry, A=&05, X=new printer output
Controls which printer output device will be used when output is sent to the printer. This does not activate and send data to the printer. VDU 2 must be used to start output going to the selected printer channel.
The value of X is made up as follows:
|Value||Meaning if set|
|0||Selects a printer sink where characters can be lost without the possibility of the system 'hanging' with a full printer buffer.|
|1||Selects output to the parallel output connector.|
|2||Selects the serial RS423 output.|
|3||Selects a user-supplied printer driver.|
|4||Selects the Econet printer.|
