Disk Spool II v2.07
DISK SPOOL II is a program that fundamentally changes the
manner in which printing takes place on your computer. Without
DISK SPOOL II, whenever an application prints information, it
sends it directly to the printer. If you don't have a printer
attached to your computer, then you can't run the application.
If your printer halts for whatever reason, then the application
halts, too. More importantly, your application's execution
speed is held back by the printer, regardless of how fast your
computer is, or how well designed the application is.
With DISK SPOOL II, your applications do not have to contend directly with the printer, since DISK SPOOL II sits in the background and intercepts your printer data, re-routing it to a disk file. Two benefits are immediately derived from this: A disk file doesn't jam, and you don't have to worry about its ribbon, so you know that your application will run to completion. Secondly, even the fastest printers cannot process data as quickly as a disk drive. So, your applications finish sooner, and you are able to do more work in less time.
