I think PR #1 sounds right for routing output to the printer, as
someone else said.

For the transfer, your best option is probably to use a modem for the
transfer - you'll need to set up a host that can receive X/Y or
Z-modem and take it from there.

Alternatively, if you can find someone with a working 3.5" floppy for
a //c or ][gs (did they make one for the ][e ever?) there is software
available for writing MS-DOS format files, and you can take it from
there. Mind, you may want to find a way to convert the BASIC code to a
non-tokenized format on the Apple or it's not going to be too useful
to you on the PC.
