You're better off not using the peripheral api. Simply,



print("line 1")

print("line 2")


Then when you run the program, do "monitor right [program]". If you want this to be your startup program, create a new program called startup and type:

shell.run(monitor right [program])

I had the same problem today, I have no idea why there is no mon.print() method.

You only need to use the peripheral api in that way if you want the user to be interacting with the terminal at the same time you are displaying on a monitor.

For example, if you made a connect 4 game, you could display the board on a large monitor with a computer hooked up to wait for rednet messages and update the board accordingly. Each player would then have a computer that sends their move over rednet to the first computer.
