I need to set a presumed 9-pin Epson competible printer to
print in compress mode, i.e. 132 columns on 80 column
paper.

Any idea/suggestion to what command string should I send to
set the printer ?

The traditional epson command set uses 0x12 to go to condensed mode (and 0x0f to go back to normal).

Sorry, it appears it should be the other way around: 0x0f to go to condensed and 0x12 to go to back to normal).

I tried on an Epson, it was working, on a HP Deskjet, no response. I wonder if I can only use that command on dot matrix printers ?
