DOS Status Monitor
The DOS Status Monitor is a memory-resident (TSR) program that can
pop up in DOS programs giving you real-time feedback on Xerox
DocuPrint P12 status as well as enabling you to pause/continue printing,
reset the printer, or eject a page.  The amount of status information
displayed depends on whether the bi-directional communication with the
printer is enabled.

combination.  The default is Ctrl-Alt-S.  You can see the name of the
printer, the printer port it is connected to, and its current status on the
upper portion of this status monitor.

P - Pause Printing
Pressing P during printing will stop further printing after the current
page has been printed.  If no print data is received by the printer
when you press P, the printer goes off-line until C is pressed.  This
option will not be displayed on the DOS Status Monitor if no bi-
directional connection exists.
x
C - Continue Printing
When printing is paused, or when the printer is waiting for some
action from you, pressing C resumes the print job.  This option will
not be displayed on the DOS Status Monitor if no bi-directional
connection exists.
