From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  print
   v.
  
      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.
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  PRINT
  
      PRe-edited INTerpreter.
  
     An early mathematics language for the IBM 705.
  
     [Sammet 1969, p. 134].
