HairLines is an MPW 3.2 Pascal sample that demonstrates different methods of creating hairlines on printers. You select the method(s) you want to use from the Settings menu. The SetLineWidth method is only supported by PostScript printers, although all printer drivers will support it in the future. The PrGeneral method can be used with any printer, QuickDraw or PostScript, and is the method of choice to date. It has the drawback that all of your graphics and text need to be scaled to the resolution you print at. Requires: Keywords: print, hairline, PostScript, QuickDraw, SetLineWidth, PrGeneral
