How to print escape sequences in a printer?

Hi all,
   I'am basically trying to to print some escape sequences along with certain characters to invoke a certain type of printing in printers. Let me explain the problem in brief. I have a dot matrix printer which when sent with certain escape sequences it will print in a certain language. I tried giving the print sequence by booting in dos, typing in a editor, echo sequences etc but it didn't work.

Please help me out on how to go about printing the escape sequences..


Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Jagan R

What program are you using? There should be a way within your program to send hex codes. If I remember correctly hex 27 is esc. So you send hex27 followed by the second char of the sequence.

ESC is X1B, or decimal 27, not X27.
I agree with viiking, I'd like to know what the answer was.

No no no... you're all wrong, first, you have to check if you have permission, check that your license plates are the correct one, the fill out a form, send the original with 4 copies, and beep the manager, then you'll need to check behind the big boss for the secret treasure, after that, you need a secret password to reinstall windows, and that's it...


Now give me the points...
