The RuneStone Library permits DOS software developers to include custom on-demand label printing in their applications, using inexpensive thermal printers from CoStar and Seiko.
The library is easy-to-use, and handles all of the details of image rasterization and serial communications with the printer. Separate versions are available for Clipper and
Using the RuneStone Library, users can print labels containing freely intermixed text, barcodes, and graphic images, individually rotated through 0/90/180/270 degrees,
using selectable black, white, and grey-scale tones. Typeface and size can be individually specified for each text element, and all printed objects can be aligned to
1-pixel accuracy (1/138" or 1/203" depending on the printer model).
RuneStone also contains low-level serial-port functions optimized for use with the printers, so no additional libraries are required. RuneStone operates under all
versions of DOS, Windows16, and Win95 DOS boxes; use under NT is not recommended, however.
The Clipper version of RuneStone can be completely overlayed using Blinker or Warplink, and is extended-mode compatible.
The C version is supplied with libraries for both Microsoft and Borland C Compilers, in all memory models. (C version source code is available at extra cost.)
A WYSIWYG label-designer and source code-generator is included at no extra charge. This utility makes it a snap to add on-demand label printing to your applications!
