To print a file on Boise, the HP2680A printer located in MJH 433, type the
where "switches" may include the standard spooler switches (see Appendix
A3 of the Monitor Command Manual, MONCOM.BH[S,DOC]/119P), and the /ROTATE
and /DVI switches. /ROTATE causes your output to be rotated 90 degrees,
and also uses a smaller font. /DVI indicates that your file is a DVI file
(output from TeX), not a text file, and contains its own typesetting
instructions. (If the extension of your filename is ".DVI", then you do
not need to give this switch; thus it is almost never needed.) /ROTATE
has no effect on DVI files.
For text (non-DVI) files, the sizes of lines and pages are as follows:
Unrotated (portrait): 88 chars/line, 70 text lines/page (72 if /NOHEADER).
Rotated (landscape): 144 chars/line, 58 text lines/page (60 if /NOHEADER).
Please report any bugs with the command GRIPE BOISE. For problems with
DVI mode, contact Joe Pallas (Pallas@Pescadero). Make sure, of course,
that the problem is in Boise and not in your file.
