Escape sequence setting on Proprinter II
Posted on 1997-07-21
I have a program running under dos that requires escape sequence codes from my printer manual to set up printer
for this program. I have an IBM proprinter II and the
manual with the escape sequences. Problem is I have never
done this and don't know how I need to put the right thing
in the places provided.
SET UP PRINTER
PROCEED WITH SETUP (Y/N):Y
ENTER ESCAPE SEQUENCE FROM PRINTER MANUAL TO SET
PITCH _ _ _ 0 (10 CHARACTERS PER INCH)
_ _ _ 12 (12 CHARACTERS PER INCH)
_ _ _ 0 (16 CHARACTERS PER INCH)
LINES _ _ _ 6 (6 LINES PER INCH)
_ _ _ 8 (8 LINES PER INCH)
MODE _ _ _ 1 (DRAFT, BOLD, EMPHASIZED, ETC.
ENTER DESIRED PITCH (CPI): 12 MARGIN: 8
(WE SUGGEST MARGIN OF 0 FOR 10 CPI, 8 FOR 12 CPI, 20 FOR 16)
you may leave mode set to "0 0 0" if you plan to print all
outputs in draft mode. However you must fill in all other
manual gives 8 lines per inch as (ESC 0)
12 caracters-per-inch (ESC :)
How do I enter these codes into all the fields each _ is a
field. Or am I totally off base here??
