    READPRINT

    NAME

    ReadPrint -- Print a part of the message in the active Read window to the printer. (V2.0)

    TEMPLATE

    PART/N

    FUNCTION

    Sends to the printer a part of the message in the active Read window, as set by MAILREAD ?.

    INPUTS

    PART/N - part of the message to send to the printer, possible values are 1 for the first part of the message (usually the body), 2 or higher for further parts, or no value at all to get a printout of the visible part of the message

    RETURNS

    RC is set to 10 if the specified part does not exist or no Read window was previously specified as "active" with MAILREAD ?.

    NOTES

    EXAMPLE

    /* Enable result codes */

    OPTIONS RESULTS

    /* Silently decode the current message */

    MAILREAD QUIET

    /* Print the body, then close the message */

    READPRINT 1
    READCLOSE

    BUGS

    The command used to blindly act upon the first Read window opened at any given time; this was changed in V2.4 to require the use of MAILREAD ? to explicitely mark a window as "active".
