[drive:][path] filename

Specifies the location and name of the printer profile that contains information about all supported printers. If this parameter is omitted, Windows NT looks for a file called GRAPHICS.PRO in the current directory and in the directory that contains the GRAPHICS.COM file.

/r

Prints the image as it appears on the screen (white characters on a black background) rather than reversed (black characters on a white background). The latter occurs by default.

/b

Prints the background in color. This switch is valid for color4 and color8 printers.

/lcd

Prints an image by using the liquid crystal display (LCD) aspect ratio instead of the CGA aspect ratio. The effect of this switch is the same as that of /printbox:lcd.

/printbox:std | /printbox:lcd

Selects the print-box size. You can abbreviate printbox as pb. You should check the first operand of the printbox statement in your GRAPHICS.PRO file and specify the /printbox:std switch if that operand is std or the /printbox:lcd switch if that operand is lcd.
