Close.  Try PR#1 instead (at least, I *THINK* port 1 is the printer).  That
should redirect all subsequent output to the printer.  To reset, do PR#0.
So, something like

LOAD BLAH.BAS
PR#1            (from this point on, you'll be typing blind)
LIST
PR#0            (and you'll be back to normal)

As for converting the file to a PC disk, you'll probably need to transfer
it to a PC electronically---a dial-up link or a null modem cable is
probably your best bet.

Amazed that I still remember this stuff (haven't used an Apple II in 12
years),
