Well I have tried just about every way that I can think of, so
I've taken lots of advice and bought "BBC Basic" from
www.rtrussell.co.uk
With some help from him, I have managed to convert all
my QBasic programs to BBC Basic, and can use the
Alt PrtScn keyboard buttons to copy the screen output
to the clipboard and then by pasting to the printer.
Thanks for your contributions.
