The CPU (Code printing Utility) is a source code printing utility designed by a Programmer for Programmers to save time and money. It takes care of formating and printing your source code while you concentrate on writing code. Therefore it saves your time. It prints upto 94 lines per page, 130 characters per line and both sides of the page, so it saves upto about 75% of your paper thereby saves money. It can speak and understand any language as long as your code is a text file. That means you may print source code of any language like C, C++, Visual Basic, Cobol, Algol, PL/SQL, Transact SQL and many others. You can print even any text file as well. The print out gives you the complete picture of your source, easy to read, lot of information in one page.
The CPU is especially helpful for people using network printer.
