dBase updates dbDOS for better dBASE Report Printing on DOS
dBase, LLC announced an update to dbDOS that further enhances the ability to print reports for dBASE applications that are still running on DOS platforms.
Who would have thought that it would be printer specific escape characters of printed documents that would elude us so some twenty years later? With the latest update, dbDOS has resolved an issue related to printing reports from DOS based applications. If you are printing reports that use the PICA or 10 Characters Per-Inch (CPI) then dbDOS™ 1.5.1 is your solution.
“dbDOS™ enables our existing dBASE DOS customers to continue using their great software”, said Mike Rozlog CEO of dBase, LLC. “The biggest issue we have been trying to fix for our customers is the print functionality on new hardware. Now, with dbDOS™ 1.5.1, we finally have a solution that appears to work across a wide range of hardware setups.”
dbDOS™ 1.5.1 is an exciting upgrade for customers already using older dBASE for DOS products and is currently available for $99 USD. It is also an excellent opportunity for users of dBASE III and IV for DOS to upgrade to the dBASE CLASSIC™ product currently on SALE right now for just $79 USD*! The dBASE CLASSIC™ product is based on dBASE V (5.0) for DOS and can be bundled at a special price of $179 USD*.
