How do I execute a PCL macro that has been downloaded to the printer?

07/02/2002

Selecting a PCL overlay is a two stage process.

Selecting a PCL overlay is a two stage process. First the macro must be identified using

ESC & f # Y

this would mean if the macro's id were 231 then the command would be

ESC & f 231 Y

where "ESC"" is the ASCII character 27 decimal. There must be no spaces in this command.

The execute command works on the last macro identified and is always

ESC & f 2 X

So, to get macro 231 executed, we need ESC & f 231 Y ESC & f 2 X

No spaces.

The following file is the binary equivalent and may be edited to suit any macro.
