I have finished my first milestone for printer emulation: Implementing an Atari 1027 emulation.
It has international character support, underline support and prints on any native printer.
On Windows, my Deskjet driver always prints an empty first page. I don't know, whether that's a driver issue, but on OSX this never happens.
I have attached an Windows binary for testing.
Also, you now can have up to four printers.
My source code can be found here: https://github.com/j...t/tree/printers.
Next milestone would be further refactoring, and finding a way to fill the empty last disk slot on the right column and saving the preferences.
Then I like to implement some further printer like 1020, 1029 (someone knows a source for the manual?) and the like. Help is welcome.
Bug report are welcome, too.
The old text printer window support is still in there, just select the text printer in the printer list and open the text window.
For the Atari 1027, select the printer in the list, press the printer icon and select your native printer.
Now print from your Atari. When you are finished, just press the eject button, and your native printer should begin printing.
If you want to print something, just press the printer icon, again.
