ExpLAN publishes printer driver software for use on the Acorn/RISC OS computer platform. Registered Developer

Most of these drivers require !Printers 1.64 or later, which may be downloaded from the website of RISCOS Ltd. The drivers are delivered within a utility called PrintControl which automatically installs the files into the correct places within !Printers. Thereafter PrintControl is used to issue non-printing administrative commands to the printer, such as is required to generate test pages, align print heads or flush blocked ink nozzles.
