The macro solution works at a lower level, the utility convert characters into equivalent keystrokes, then emu71 playback those keystrokes, nothing more.
Because it can be used anywhere (runtime, programs, etc) I use this facility to automate frequent tasks or like the demo macro, mix and match runtime commands with program entry.

Thanks. So although intended for different goals, it can indeed be used to process an tire text file into a BASIC program as Harald is inquiring about. Very clever to see this solution hidden within the existing tools. I was dreading having to explain the alihdr utility and DOSLink import procedure. Not rocket science to be sure, but big steps when first beginning HP-IL use.

We'll wait for Harald to weigh-in on your solution.
