4UP will create a 4-up label file suitable for printing and use with a
cheshire mailing label system (one that takes a full page of labels--4
across, 11 down--and applies adhesive, then puts the labels on the
material to be mailed). The program is a son of COLUMN, being a
specific case and slightly modified version of that program. 4UP
transforms a 1-up, or single column file into a 4 across, or 4-up,
format. The order is row-wise, that is, progressing across a row then
proceeding to the next row. Most cheshire systems expect 4 columns of
30 characters each with 4 character spaces between each column for a
total of 132 characters/row. 4UP will do this but also allow up to 3
characters to encroach into the "blank" space in between columns--do
this at your own risk tho--they may not be processed correctly by a
You will be asked if your input file has the first column blank; a "y"
response will strip off that first column when the output file is
made. Your input file then can be up to 30 characters wide (or 33 if
you want to run into the normally blank space); and should start with
the first label--that is, there should not be a stray blank line or
anything else as the first line(s) of your file.
The program will ask for input and output file names and how many
lines per group you want (6 or 8). A one inch label cycle is wanted,
but the file can be printed at 6 lines/inch (5 lines in the label, 1
in between) or 8 lines/inch (7 lines in the label). Use /FORMS:BAKLAB
for the 6 line file in your print command, /FORMS:BKL888 for 8.
