Printer and Plotter Queues

To output listings and hard copies of plots a number of devices can be used. These can be used through a number of system queues which spool the output to the appropriate devices. The majority of these printers are PostScript compatible. Printer are listed at URL

To print the log of the MIDAS session the PRINT/LOG command is used. This command will produce the output on printers, most of which are located in the User room.

Hardcopies of plots are made using the COPY/GRAPH and the PLOT commands (see Chapter 6). The first parameter of the ASSIGN/GRAPH command specifies the plotting queue/device to be used. The help command in MIDAS can be used to get an up to date list of output devices.
