Print to a file

To print to a file bypassing the prompt for the filename you can create a 
new port in your OS2SYS.INI file: 

/* add an output file port into OS2SYS.INI                            */
  call RxFuncAdd "SysIni", "RexxUtil", "SysIni"
     call SysIni "SYSTEM", "PM_SPOOLER_PORT", "c:\prtout.prn",,
           ";" || "00"x

After the execution of this little program you can assign the newly 
created port to any printer object.   
Note:  Every new print output overwrites the existing file - you can't 
       append the output to the file. Well, at least I haven't found a way 
       to do this.
