I need to find a full list of the PCL printer commands. I've
got several examples like underline (<esc>&d#D) and some
other like font selections, but I would appreciate some
more, as I can't yet use bold, italic, or any proper fonts.

I would greatly appreciate it if I would be able to retrieve
a full list of commands.

If you have a HP printer, you can check documentation tha is shipped with it. An explanation of all accepted PCL code is defined there.
If you have know someone who has an new high end laser printer, you can find all PCL codes inside this printer manual.
