PAR_PULSE

Syntax PAR_PULSE x
Location ST/QL, SMSQ/E for the Atari

Some accelerator boards enhance the speed of the Atari ST and TT computers so much that the parallel printer port may be affected. This can be fixed by using PAR_PULSE to increase the rate of the strobe pulse. This problem tends to be required if you have a printer which has heavy drive requirements (notably a CANON) or if you use a long printer cable.

Example

PAR_PULSE 80

NOTE

On SMSQ/E running on non-Atari’s, this command has no effect.
