How do I execute a PCL macro that has been downloaded to the printer?
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
The following file is the binary equivalent and may be edited to suit any macro.
