ZX PRINTER driver for ZEDIT

Post by stefano » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:35 pm

This driver is for ZEDIT, an UNICODE text editor for the 48K ZX81 with 48K RAM.
To use the driver you need to load the text in memory (32K could suffice), then load and run the driver.

lp.c
ZEDPRINT, main program file. Be aware that most of the engine is part of z88dk, to be "prepared" in a special way.

thankyou, I have a slightly improved version, coming soon, with the correct triangular symbols for arrows. I'd like to patch everything and get variant for other 'language localizations', e.g. French, Italian, Spanish. .

There are also some differences in 'Ää' mode (printed as 'äÄ' mode! upercase/LOWERCASE!) and in the 'Ää'+SHIFT mode
