It's a MSX-DOS 1 tool created by Marc van Iersel. You can find it in MSX Computer Magazine 39 and the corresponding MCMD38 disk.



Prints the contents of the disk in a drive.

Note: Under MSX-DOS 2 / Nextor, this tool can only print the files of the folder in which you have put it.


FPRINT <Device>:<Filename>


<Device> is the name for used device. It can only be a disk drive.

If you don't specify the drive, the computer will use the currently active drive (by default, it's drive A:)

Device type Device name Remark
Disk drive A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H A floppy disk interface can control until 2 drives.

<Filename> is the file name you are searching for. Wildcards can replace some characters in file name to handle several files and/or folders. The asterisk (*) and question mark (?) are used as wildcard characters. The asterisk matches any sequence of characters, whereas the question mark matches any single character.


This tool will ask you the number of columns (between 1 and 12) you want to use for the printing, then will execute your command.
