That might do it.  Although sometimes you just get a sheet of text with 
the Postscript header at the top.

And very familiar to people who've ever worked with Dec dot-matrix 
printers.  Decwriter III's shoot paper at an ungodly rate of speed for 
their size. (0)


(0) BTW - I have two Decwriter III printers for local pickup only - zip 
Too heavy to ship and welded frames so they can't be disassembled.

I also have three old Sparcprinters if somebody wants those.  No cards 
or cables though - they do power up and have cartridges in them.  Again, 
local pickup only.
