The publication, Print, A Quarterly Journal of the Graphic Arts, was a limited edition quarterly periodical begun in 1940 and continued under different names up to the present day as Print, a bimonthly American magazine about visual culture and design. In its current format, Print documents and critiques commercial, social, and environmental design from every angle: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Print is a general-interest magazine, written by cultural reporters and critics who look at design in its social, political, and historical contexts. From newspapers and book covers to Web-based motion graphics, from corporate branding to indie-rock posters, from exhibitions to cars to monuments, Print shows its audience of designers, art directors, illustrators, photographers, educators, students, and enthusiasts of popular culture why our world looks the way it looks, and why the way it looks matters. Print underwent a complete redesign in 2005.
The New Hacker's Dictionary
To output, even if to a screen. If a hacker says that a program “printed a message”, he means this; if he refers to printing a file, he probably means it in the conventional sense of writing to a hardcopy device (compounds like ‘print job’ and ‘printout’, on the other hand, always refer to the latter). This very common term is likely a holdover from the days when printing terminals were the norm, perpetuated by programming language constructs like C's printf(3). See senses 1 and 2 of tty.
