How to use SEND

     SEND is a program to send strings which include control characters to
either a device (such as a printer) or another file. Format of the command
is :-
                SEND "string" TO <device or file>

To include control characters in the string, the ASCII code should be
enclosed in square brackets eg [27] is the ESC character. To send either
a [ or ] character use the Ascii codes 91 and 93. 

For example using the Amiga Printer control characters:-

SEND "[27]#1[13][10]" to prt: (Initialise printer)

SEND "[27][91]4mExample using the Send Command[27][91]0m[13][10]" 

SEND "[27][91]6wAND THIS IS ENLARGED[27][91]0m[13][10]" to prt: (Enlarge)

This program is freely distributable as long as its sent with this 
document. Enjoy!
