LPT1: Capture Program

 LPT1: Capture Program

I recently purchased a VariTyper VT600 Plus Laser printer.  This printer  only
knows  postscript.   Some  of  the  software  that  I  have  does  not  output
PostScript.  This software does output to an Epson FX-85.   I  have  an  Epson
FX-85.   I  would  like  to  sell the Epson FX-85 someday soon.  I also have a
program that will convert Epson to PostScript.  This solves a few problems.

Now for the real problem.

Some of the software (like Print Shop) outputs directly to  the  printer.   It
does not allow the user to specify a file instead.

Now for the question of the hour.

Is there a program that will allow a user to redirect output from  LTP1  to  a
file?  The program MUST be memory resident, since I cannot call it from inside
other programs.  I do not care if it is  Public  Domain  or  Commerical  since
money is not an issue.  (After all I spent $15,000 for the printer.  [Actually
I spent $29,000.  I bought two of them and they gave me a discount.] ;-)

It it is Public Domain, send it to me.  Please do not  tell  me  that  it  was
posted  x  number  of [days|weeks|months] ago.  Since I am asking for it, I do
not have it.  I may have seen it, but I did not want it  at  the  time,  so  I
ignored  it.   If  it  is Commerical, send me the program name and the company
that sells it.  I am particularily interested in anyone's personal experiences
with regards to this type of product.

Post Script (PS):

I am not looking for any comments about how I should  have  bought  a  printer
that  emulates  other printers besides PostScript.  This device is a 600 x 600
D.P.I. High Quality Laser Printer.  And from the research that was done, there
are  no  printers  in  this  class  that  output  PostScript AND emulate other
