Is there a difference between
SET PRINTER TO NAME <printer name>
and
SET PRINTER TO <printer name>

Hi Kevin,


with NAME the output goes to the named printer.
without NAME the output goes to a file or a printer port (like LPT1)

It's more clear if you write:
SET PRINTER TO <filename>
or
SET PRINTER TO NAME <printer name>
