no, it's not in the manual. The driver must be modifyed to do that.
Not sure if the 850 would be able to keep up at 19200.

More like a few gigs on some units.  But, those  were the days when disk
drives were king (and you had eight of them :) ).

Most printer interfaces translate the $9b to $13 and that is it. That
is why printers must be set to CR after line feed. Atari ones are the
exception. Most programs take into account the 155 - 13 translation
and avoide 155 all together. 153 is used instead IIRC.

...

Unfond memories: I can remember doing my own graphic dump programs, but it
has been so long I can't even remember why I did it rather then just use an
exisiting program. Wrote dumps for Axiom<I think Axiom was only 7 pin head>,
Citizen, Epson.

Early on when I was still new to Atari I do remember literally spending days
dumping the same file over and over and having it glitch 1/2 way through the
dump due to a '155 in the data. After I finally figured it out, I took a
less then optimum approach and output 200 single pixel height lines. I think
eventually I did write a dump that did two 4 bit lines to feed the data a
little faster.


 
APE and ProSystem cables

On the APE website, I notice that there are two cables for sale there -
one called an APE cable, and the other a ProSystem cable.  The pictures
are identical.  Are these really two different cables, or just the same
cable under two different names?

I know I'll need the APE cable, but I need to know if I'll need the
ProSystem cable for copy-protected disks.

Thanks,

Mike
