When using a word processor in a data processing mode, the user may need to change printer parameters. The user will use the printer profile utility in order to do this. Ordinarily, the utility will not be displayed unless explicitly asked for by the user. It is possible for the utility to be updated on the diskette and the operator now using the diskette would not know it. In order to avoid this problem, the user will automatically see the current parameters in memory upon entry into the printer profile utility. The implicit list will allow the user to see the current parameter values as they are in memory and immediately know if changes are necessary or to exit the printer profile utility.
