Add a new printer that prints to the special "File:" port
From the printers' panel, right click on the printer you have just added and select Properties.
A panel showing the properties for this printer will pop up, click on the Details tab of this panel.
Click on the Add Port... button.
The Add Port panel will pop up, click on the Other radio button, and make sure Local Port is highlighted, click on OK.
A small panel asking for the name of the port will pop up, enter the name of a file in the edit box, for example C:\Output.prn.
Click on OK to dismiss the panel asking for the port name.
Click on OK to dismiss the printer properties panel.
If you now 'print' to this printer the output will be sent directly to C:\Output.prn (or wherever), overwriting what was there before.
