Overview

HTMLPrint is a Windows printing utility that is intended for printing HTML and ASCII text Documents and image files; including files with the following file extensions. .htm, .html, .txt, .png, .gif, .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .wmf and .emf.

Printing can be done in three different ways:

HTMLPrint runs as a visible application only when it is started without passing any argument in the command-line. It cannot run as a service.

Command line parameters usage

To print an HTML file from the Command Line pass the filename to be printed as a parameter, additional parameters can be added to configure the printing.

Bersoft HTML Print is designed to work with and be called by other software or at least, by a batch file, passing the filename (HTML  or TXT file, GIF, JPEG, BMP, PNG, WMF or EMF image) to be printed as a parameter in the command line; a text file containing a list of files to be printed or a directory path can be passed in the command line as well.

Printing lists or files incoming in a predefined directory (Directory Monitoring)

HTMLPrint can watch one or several folders for HTML documents or images and print them to a specified printer.

Alternatively, file lists can be predefined, saved and printed on schedule or just printed without saving anything.

See Directory Monitoring & List Printing and Batch Printing Editor

Using Configuration files

Besides settings options through the command line, most options are set by using a configuration file. This file can be created by other applications or by using HTMLPrint  File > Configuration File > Edit menu command, which opens a screen for setting all options in the configuration file.

See HTMLPrint configuration file

Using HTML files as headers/footers

By including some special tags in the HTML file, HTML files may be printed as headers or footers or headers/footers can be predefined in the configuration file..
