Fortran Printing Interface

By Jay Lieske, La Canada, CA

In Absoft FORTRAN version 2.3 one usually must employ Absoft’s special routine called PrPort.sub in order to use the Printing Manager on the Macintosh. PrPort.sub employs the old RAM-based printing manager, but recent trends suggest that it would be better to use the printing traps accessible through “_PrGlue” at $A8FD since these routines are now in ROM and contain special routines such as PrGeneral that are unavailable in the RAM-based printing manager. In addition, PrPort.sub, which is written in assembly language, is limited to the hard-coded routines which existed at the time Absoft developed the routine and is thus not extendible. Since usage of PrPort.sub will undoubtedly limit the development of FORTRAN programs on the Macintosh, it is of interest to see how one might use Absoft’s Toolbx.sub in order to implement the new ROM-based printing manager traps.

The Toolbx.sub routine from Absoft employs an encoded ‘trap dispatch’ LongInt to describe the toolbox or OS trap number, as well as to describe the parameters required for the toolbox or OS calls. The new printing traps accessible through the _PrGlue trap at $A8FD require that a special ‘routine selector’ be pushed onto the stack prior to the $A8FD trap instruction. Hence, if we are to succeed in using the print traps, we must be able to insert this routine selector number onto the stack.

By studying and disassembling Absoft’s Toolbx.sub it was found that the routine selector parameter could be put into the Toolbx.sub call as the final parameter (i.e. the parameter just before the final closing parenthesis) and that it would be pushed onto the stack just before Toolbx.sub executed the trap number. In order to instruct Toolbx.sub that there was another parameter for it to pass, however, the ‘trap dispatch’ code had to be modified. That is where the disassembly of Toolbx.sub became important because current Absoft documentation is not always correct on this matter.

We have developed the include files ‘prtrap.inc’ and ‘PrGenDefs.inc’ which can be used with Absoft Fortran’s Toolbx.sub in order to implement the print traps. A similar method could be employed for any other new traps (or traps and additional routine selectors’) that Apple develops. The file ‘prtrap.inc’ contains the encoded trap dispatch number and the routine selector for all the new print traps documented in Inside Macintosh Volume V. The routine selector for PrGeneral, which inadvertently was left out of Inside Mac, was found in Lightspeed Pascal’s equates as $70070480. We also include a file ‘PrGenDefs.inc’ which contains the equates required for use of the PrGeneral gateway, potentially a very useful new trap which enables one to check and to set the resolution of the printer in use.

To demonstrate how the Toolbx.sub traps are implemented in a program, first consider the Pascal calling-sequences as documented in Inside Mac. Suppose that a trap ‘PrRoutine’ is documented by Apple as being implemented like this in Pascal:

     PrRoutine(Arg1, Arg2,...,Argn);

then the Toolbx.sub routine in Fortran would be employed as follows:

      call Toolbx( PrRoutineCode, Arg1, Arg2,...,Argn, xPrRoutineCode) 


if the toolbox trap is a procedure. If the toolbox call is a function then the Pascal version would be

   Result := PrRoutine(Arg1, Arg2,...,Argn);

while the Toolbx.sub Fortran version would be

  Result = Toolbx(PrRoutine,Arg1, Arg2,...,Argn,xPrRoutine).

The analogous calls using prport.sub for a subroutine would be: call PrPort(Code, Arg1, Arg2,..., Argn). Programs which currently employ PrPort could readily be changed simply by replacing PrPort with Toolbx and appending the ‘xPrRoutine’ parameter.

An example program ‘demotrap.for’ is included for implementing the new print manager trap-based calls. The program does not actually do any printing, but shows how one can access the print record and query the printer for variable resolutions. Just use the Chooser to select your ‘printer’ and then the usual dialogs will come up on screen to demonstrate that everything works as advertised. A colleague has employed these new traps in a large plotting package which was ported over to the Mac from a mainframe computer and the results are quite satisfactory.

Listing Two: PrTrap.inc
* File: prtrap.inc      29 Dec 1987       JHL
*     A replacement for Absoft’s prport.inc and prport.sub .
*     This implements traps for Fortran so that it can be used with toolbx.sub 
.
*     Called together by J. Lieske, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, based 
upon
*     Inside Mac V and Lightspeed Pascal equates.
*
*     The general calling sequence for procedures is
*           CALL TOOLBX(PrRoutine, Args, xPrRoutine)
*     while that for a function is 
*           TOOLBX(PrRoutine, Args, xPrRoutine) .
*     In the above parameters, PrRoutine is the encoded PrGlue (Printer 
Trap
*     $A8FD) parameter and xPrRoutine is the ‘call number’ as specified 
in
*     Inside Mac V Chapter 22.  The ‘Args’ are the sequence of arguments 
to
*     the procedure or function as specified by Inside Mac.  
*           Basically, the xPrRoutine ‘call number’ is placed on the 
stack
*     just ahead of the printer trap number ($A8FD) and the Fortran PrRoutine
*     parameter tells Fortran’s TOOLBX how to interpret the ‘Args’ and
*     ‘xPrRoutine’ values.
*           For example, the routine PrintDefault is called from 
*     Fortran as follows:  CALL TOOLBX( PRINTDEFAULT, hPrint, xPRINTDEFAULT) 
.
