Review
This software allows character based applications to print to any Windows printer, including USB, network printers, faxmodems and PDF writers, even if it is a Dos/Windows application or a Unix/Linux app. running on a Windows PC via telnet, without changes to the original applications.

You can set your application to print to an ascii file, or you can have Printfil capturing a parallel port output, automatically redirecting your print jobs to any printer, even to a printer which is physically connected to the captured port.

it allows also:

- preview printing
- include logos or other images stored in separate files
- colorize the text
- print A4 landscape sheets in place of printing on dot-matrix 136-column printers
- print to ANY printer installed on the Windows Control Panel, including USB, GDI, Windows-only and Virtual printers
- send print jobs via fax (using any third-party fax software which acts like a printer - eg. Microsoft Fax - or a multifunction - all-in-one - printer)
- use specialist windows fonts (barcodes, for instance) as well as normal characters
- export print jobs in PDF format, with or without user intervention, even with encryption and password protection
- send print jobs via e-mail by using your own e-mail client program, with or without user intervention
- use a single, customizable set of escape sequences for ALL printers, regardless of make, model and emulation provided (if any, as for GDI printers)
- print complex jobs to legacy printers in RAW mode (drawings etc.)
- archive a copy of all the captured jobs
- use multiple printers simultaneously

All this without changes to your applications

If you are developing host based applications (like Unix) to run on a Windows Terminal Emulator, you can stop battling with transparent-print characters and different settings for different printers. All you need is a shared file system (NFS, SCO-VisionFS, Samba and others) to store output for your print jobs and PRINTFIL.


Changelog:
Version: 5.1(01 Nov 2006)
1. When a PDF file is created with user intervention (through the preview window), now Printfil remembers the choosen path, so that it will be proposed the next time;
2. When a PDF file is created without user intervention, now you can specify its name and path, by the optional CFG file. If you don't specify this data, the PDF file will be named as the TXT one, just like in the previous versions;
3. By the optional CFG file, now you can choose to automatically open a PDF file created without user intervention inside the default PDF reader (Acrobat Reader or others) installed in the client PC.

Practically, you can use Acrobat Reader as an alternative to the Printfil's preview;
4. Added a new command line parameter: CLOSE
By running "Printfil CLOSE" you can automatically close all the Printfil copies which are in execution on the machine. It's useful when Printfil is run by a batch file, to avoid having multiple copies running simultaneously;
5. Improved AutoUpdate features, which in future will make upgrades easier to install, with less messages on screen;
6. Added the ability to move a Personal Edition license from a PC to another one without having to contact the support team;
7. Improved the user interface in language Swedish and Czech;
8. Some other minor improvements and bug fixes;
Version: 5.0 -1-
