My current setup is a dot matrix network printer that receives line by line print jobs all day. These print jobs can total more than a thousand a day. I am trying to find a way to have all print jobs print to a file and append to that file till it reaches a certain size or date. Does anyone know how this might be accomplished?

I think you would have to create a program to run whatever creates the print jobs, then redirect the print job to a file. This function would be inside a loop that checks the size of the file on each pass. When it reached the predefined size, it prints the file and either purges the file's contents of better yet renames the file so you have backup files in the event something goes wrong.
