I've been doing this for some time with the forms subsystem.
This is only(and very) useful on Display Manager.
There is quite a plateau of complexity in
the FORMs SubSystem (SAS Language Reference pages: 811-819)
For a quick start, a set of topics to research /discover are:
the *Terminal font* (the font that windows uses to emulate DOS text)
and the *formchar* sets offered in
the *config* file
for *-wincharset OEM*
The forms subsystem helps you to send escape sequences to your printer.
These will allow for the enormous range of possibilities supported by
except support for truetype fonts, including SAS Monospace
(unless you can download them as softfonts into your printer).
The "big" modern alternative is the web publishing tools described at
the SAS Institute web site http://www.sas.com.
These can generate .html you might like, although I've not heard of that
being much use for printing from DOS.
