DCPS, Postscript printing, and fonts?

» close window

The Question is:

We're printing to various PostScript printers from COBOL programs using DCPS.
 We'd like to use a font that is not part of the printer. Is there a way to
 load fonts from the Alpha?

The Answer is :

  If the application program is producing a text file for printing, then
  the only font that will be used by DCPS is Courier.
  If PostScript files are being produced, fonts can be included in or (if
  available in the printer) can be referenced in the Postscript document.
  PostScript fonts can be purchased from various vendors.
