this question is about catching printer data and writing it in a file.
We use an old Unix system which is unfortunately crucial. This Unix system uses a matrix printer. This printer seems to get its driver from Unix and it happens often that the printer has failures and we have to reboot both the unix machine and the printer. We do not want to configure too much on the Unix machine. I am thinking of using paralell->USB and letting an other computer catch the file and store it. Advantage is also that I have the data digital in stead of on rows of paper Or maybe it is possible using the parallel->usb cable and placing it to an usb printer
Somebody knows if this is possible? If yes, please give me a clue
