Default Emulation other Operation Systems with Linux?

I tried to set this thread neutral and summary.

______________________________________________________

Now to my problem: DOS - emulator with Linux needed.

Reason:
I wanna use my old DOS-databases.
I once programmed it myself, pretty fast and very easy to use. I never ported it to Windows later, too much work (what had been 1 page of source code for a masks, would make with Windows minimum of 8 pages).

I couldn't use it with Windows later, because the Win command SHARE.SYS, every Windows is using, bends the indexes of my database. Programm worked, but most querries where incompleate. I've never found out the reason of this issue.

So I hope with a different operating system my problems are solved (maybe !).

Your experances with a dos emulator? What's with printing Emulator out of the emulator?

I'm using dosbox for playing games. It works quite well.

Snippet of the wiki

In theory, any MS-DOS or PC-DOS (referred to commonly as "DOS") application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early development.
Here you go dosbox dot com/wiki/Main_Page

That's indeed a valuable notice:
The printer should run too with it!
Only text (no graphic), but:
I don't know what may happen with:
- Line Feed
- Form Feed
- Characters (small, normal,)

This meight be interesting, because is Linux doing the work or DOS directly ???

In dosemu (don't know about dosbox), you can spool prints through the Linux printing daemon lpr. Quoting dosemu's README.TXT:

Quote:
2.1.10. Printers

Printer is emulated by piping printer data to your normal Linux
printer. The belows tells DOSEMU which printers to use. The `timeout'
tells DOSEMU how long to wait after the last output to LPTx before
considering the print job as `done' and to close it.

# Print commands to use for LPT1, LPT2 and LPT3.
# Default: "lpr -l, lpr -l -P lpt2, lpr -l P lpt3"
# Which means: use the default print queue for LPT1, "lpt2" queue for LPT2,
# "lpt3" queue for LPT3. "-l" means raw printing mode (no preprocessing).

$_lpt1 = "lpr -l"
$_lpt2 = "lpr -l -P lpt2"
$_lpt3 = "lpr -l -P lpt3"

$_printer_timeout = (20)# idle time in seconds before spooling out
I'm not sure what happens to non-ASCII characters, though.

This answers the question half.

It's possible to pipe via the DOSEMU through Linux. - great.

I understand: it switches the channel for different printers. Usually mainboards are having one channel: LPT1 (the others are optional with extended cards - not used).

I use to switch the different printers by a hardware switch, not so elegant but effective.
- One for every day duty (Network-printer, not needed for the DOS job).
- An other one is a Color-Laser at LPT1 + hardware switch. Not for ever day duty and of course not for the DOS job.
- At least an old needle printer (DIN A3) at LPT1 + hardware switch. Used for the databases.

The 2 printer (color and needle) are switched manually (I know what job I'm printing actuelly ).

What I don't understand:
Linux uses a spooler, buffering data between the EMU. and the printer. OK, - Understood.
But how to hell will I know how long the printing will be using ????
With a needle printer it makes a big difference (half a page or 10 pages and more).

At least I wanna give a response.

My old database is running great with "dosemu". The old printer is installed too, it wasn't a problem at all. Also the newer Laser - printer (Network printer), because it runs by an emulation (understood at least; DOSemu is giving the printing job back to Linux and Linux does the printing).
For some standard prints I'm using now the Laser - printer, because it's of course 100 times faster than the old needle - printer.

At least I found out, that a Windows Version of DOSemu is existing too ... if I would have known years ago... I could have saved a lot of anger ....

But Linux is the better choice as Windows (XP), because one can work with (4) separate Windows (Screens) in Linux. So I'm able to jump from one screen to an other.
