    Robert, to clarify... If you are running your DOS program from
    Windows and your printer won't print from a DOS program (which is very common now-a-days)
    Then DOSPRINT would convert your information being sent to the
    printer into a format that a 'windows only' printer can understand.

    If your printer will allow you to print from a DOS program, then
    you should be set. PowerTree will not affect printing in any way.
    It only indexes data for quick retrieval.

    Hope this all makes sense....

    Gary, great! From the above, can I assume you mean if my
    printers are Windows and Dos, that I can send printer
    control functions to get the font sizes? If so, then all I have
    to do is find those codes. The codes are not in the manual,
    but I think I saw them displayed somewhere on the Internet.
    Thank you!!!

    Robert,
    PowerTree won't offer any feature that would allow printing. It is
    just a indexing program that will allow you to 'sort' and easily
    retrieve data in your database. You provide the data, and
    PowerTree will handle index in sorted fashion. I don't remember
    exactly what the limitations are, but 4 indexes should be no problem
    at all.

    As far as printing.... if you are using a 'windows only' printer and
    need to print to it from your Dos program, Lance has a product
    called DOSPRINT, in which a demo can be downloaded from www.dosprint.com
    This does assume one is running at least win95.

    Hope this helps,
    Gary Stout

    Ok, I am getting sold on Power Tree.... but the project I have
    in mind for it is Genealogy. Too tedious to go through here,
    but in a nutshell can/will Power Tree print on 4 by 6 inch
    cards using condensed print? Lance, if seeing a gif/jpg of
    the desired finished product helps you respond, feel free to
    email me off list.
    Yes, I know, the programming end is up to me, but I am hoping
    it has printer function control. 19 CPI would be absolutely
    wonderful!! (Anything less than that wouldn't be enough
    and my client would have to make a decision if she wanted to use
    regular paper or not.)

    And in indexing a single data base, can one data base use four
    indexes? Primary, Secondary, third, and fourth?

    Thank you.

    Hi Robert,

    PowerTREE is a Btree Manager. Briefly, its a way of indexing a database file based on a certain key. For example, you might index a customer list by their Surnames.

    For more information, please peruse the PowerTREE product page at http://www.powerbasic.com/products/powertree/ and maybe peruse the Gazette article I wrote on PowerTREE... See Gazette #28 at http://www.powerbasic.com/files/pub/docs/Gazette/
