What do you mean by "Printer Codes" ? Control codes (escape sequences) ?

I need to put in the printer command codes that change the format of the printer, like line spacing and lpi, the codes are=> ESC C 2767 1B43 and that is supposed to tell the printer to print 8 lines per inch.  But I do not know how to put them into clipper.  Maybe you know another way?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

The escape sequences are just like any other text - the difference is the way the printer interpretes them.
Just print the codes as a text.

2767 is the decimal representation of ESC C.
1B43 is the hexadecimal.

SET CONSOLE OFF
SET PRINT ON
?? chr(27)+"C"
SET PRINT OFF
SET CONSOLE ON
