By the way, if you wrote a suitable program, it was possible for the ZX81 to print lower case, or even your own UDG on the ZX81 / Alphacom 32 Printer / Timex Sinclair 2040 printer.

Oddly enough I have such a thing in one of Mr Bambini's wonderful books.

I will scan if anyone's interested.

I forget if it was a ZX81 or a ZX Spectrum program... anyway, it printed pictures in "landscape" (sideways) format on the attached printer 8-)

That's a lot of fuzz about a Spectrum paper left carelessly in a ZX81 book. :lol:

Just 30 bytes needed to do that on any B/W printer attached to a ZX Spectrum.

On the ZX81, you can print a screen in high res using my ZX printer driver.
