What does "Print to file" mean?

When I click 'Print' I am given the option to "Print to file." I can't find
a description for exactly what this does.

The following provides summary information on what Print to File does.

Google Print to File will return more information

After reading Don's post, it occurred to me that I would not
know or did not remember what to do with a .prn file. The MS
site does not explain either but, based on dim memories, I
printed a Word document to a file called foop.prn. In a command
window, copy foop.prn lpt1, printed it.

I live and learn or perhaps have my memory refreshed!
