15.4. Printing

Most people assume that the PalmPilot can't print directly to a printer. But two shareware programs let you hook up certain kinds of printers directly to the PalmPilot. Both are included on the CD-ROM that comes with this book.

This cradle acts as a serial port; unfortunately, most printers today have parallel ports instead.
