    Printing a program

    Just intersted to know if anyone has ever printed their program(s) onto paper to store as a portfolio. I tryed using the print option on DevC++ and the program came out really faint and hard to read.

    Then I tryed porting it over to word pad but still got the same problem. Does anyone know how to make the program readable when it is printed out? I was thinking of bolding the font but Im not sure if that would make any difference.

    And yes, my printer is full of ink so that is not the issue.

    Any ideas?

    You probably just need to use a different color scheme and then print it.

    If that doesn't help, then save the source as a text file and print that. You'll probably have to lose syntax coloring unless you have a clever editor.

    Codex all the way. And it's free.

    Funny, I have never had a problem with readability when printing my programs from Dev-C++. The default color scheme seems to work fine for me.

    I print bits of programs out all the time. When I learn new things I print them out and keep a reference binder for easy lookup if I ever have questions. Same with librarys that I create, so that if I have a brain fart an cannot remember how my own library works, I can reference it on paper real quick without having to load the source up.

    Some methods I've use for this:
    • SlickEdit -> print via pdf995* + [Open PDF +] print
    • Code::Blocks -> Export to PDF... + [Open PDF +] print
    *I mentioned PDF printing to SlickEdit, and in some future release it may be there.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I wish I was that organized.

    Ahh, but niether am I. My binder is nothing more that a collection of loose paper jumbled together in a big pile. Its a good idea but it is not very organized...

    one of these days I will at least put it in sone sort of order....
