    Printing Debug Without Printer :: MFC

    Hi.

    I want to debug code that manages printing. However, I do not own a printer or have access to one. Is it possible to get print preview to emulate a printer? I just need the program to show an sample of what the print would looks like.

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    Sure, you can print to a file. Although, I'm not sure what the computer will do without knowing what sort of output to generate. For instance some printers use PCL others use PostScript. Anyways, just start off this way and see how it pans out.
