wher I have the symbol ghostprint defied in my LOGIN.COM to be
and the GSPRINT.EXE is a simple C program I wrote which strips off the /tmp/ and passes the arguments to a file called GSPRINT.COM which enables me to print on an HP deskjet printer, and looks similar to this
$ SET VER
$ IF F$SEARCH(P1).EQS.""
$ WRITE SYS$OUTPUT "Can't find ''P1' - please specify the correct file name"
$ file_spec = "''P1'"
$ file_type = F$PARSE(file_spec,,,"TYPE"
$ IF file_type.EQS.".PS" .OR. file_type.EQS."." .OR. file_type.EQS.".TMP"
$! Use GhostScript to generate file from PostScript
$! Use colour deskjet driver
$ gs "-sDEVICE=cdj550" "-dBitsPerPixel=16" "-dShingling=0" "-dDepletion=1" "-
$ P1 = "SYS$SCRATCH:''file_name'.dj"
$ PRINT/DELETE/PASSALL 'P1'
You may want to add some lines to tidy up the temporary files which result.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
