/P Startup Switch

The /P startup switch defines an alternate Printers file (PRINTERS.DAT).

The Printers file contains Keystroke's Printer settings.

To use multiple Printers files:
- Enter the Printer settings that most or all workstations share.
- Make copies of the default Printers file (PRINTERS.DAT). Give each copy a standardized file name. For example: PRINTERS1.DAT, PRINTERS2.DAT, PRINTER3.DAT, etc.
- Use the /P switch to assign a different Printers file to each workstation. For example: Keystroke.EXE /P PRINTERS2.DAT.
- Change the Printer settings for each workstation as required.

NOTE: If the /P StartUp Switch is used to define an alternate Printers file and a file extension is not included, the .DAT Data File Extension is added to it (e.g. "/P PrintersR1" sets the Printers data file to "PrintersR1.dat"). It is recommended to always include the data file extension (normally ".DAT") because it is easier to see exactly what is being requested. If no file extension is desired, add just a period to the filename (e.g. "/P PrintersR1.").
