Slightly OT: Need Printer Utility
- Hello vimmers,
Forgive me if this shows up twice in your mailbox. Our email system
here is in transition.
A while back someone posted a message here asking for suggestions for
a print utility for text files. Someone else responded with a
recommendation for Printfile32. I tried it myself and have found it
very useful ... until now.
I tried using Printfile32 v2.1.5 to print a text file with a VIM
example of sorting a file. It contains this line:
I asked Printfile32 to print with a frame around the text, at 72 lines
per page. Unfortunately, Printfile32 seems to treat the :%! as an
escape. My workaround is to put spaces in the trigraph: : % ! sort
My questions are
- has anyone else seen this behavior?
- is there a configuration setting that I am overlooking?
- is there an alternative print utility with a comparable amount of functionality (but without
this strange behavior)?
