Abstract

The label-printing system allows users to print 8 lines of data onto labels in a variation of printing formats. The data can be entered from the keyboard or can be retrieved from diskette. The quantity of labels printed is user-selectable. In addition, there are 3 new program features: (Image Omitted) 1 - Print additional labels after the original quantity is done. 2 - Modify any or all of the 8 lines of label data to be printed. 3 - Save the set of 8 lines of label data in a user-selectable data file. The previous label program simply received 8 lines of input data entered from the keyboard and printed it out. All of the lines are printed out centered with normal-width characters except for line 1. Line 1 is print out with double-width characters. The quantity of labels printed is user-selectable.
