Q45420: LPOS(0) and LPOS(1) Both Return Print Head Position for LPT1
Article: Q45420 Product(s): See article Version(s): 6.00 6.00b | 6.00 6.00b Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | docerr B_QuickBas | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 2-FEB-1990 The LPOS(0) and LPOS(1) functions both return the current position of the print head within the printer buffer for LPT1. LPOS(2) returns the current print position for LPT2. On Page 263 of the "Microsoft BASIC Compiler 6.0: BASIC Language Reference" manual for Versions 6.00 and 6.00b for MS OS/2 and MS-DOS, the program example uses LPOS(0) to return the current position of the line printer's print head within the print buffer, but no mention is made of LPOS(0) in the function description. LPOS(0) operates the same as LPOS(1), and there is no difference between the two functions. This information applies also to Page 263 of the "Microsoft QuickBASIC 4.0: BASIC Language Reference" manual for QuickBASIC Versions 4.00 and 4.00b, to Page 224 of the "Microsoft QuickBASIC 4.5: BASIC Language Reference" for Version 4.50, and to the QuickBASIC Version 4.50 QB Advisor online Help system. This documentation error was corrected on Page 204 of the "Microsoft BASIC 7.0: Language Reference" manual for Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00.
