Okay, here is hard one...

I'm looking for escape codes for a Panasonic KX-P7100 printer.  Any ideas?  Are they even available?
Thanks

I believe the KX-P7100 is a GDI printer, using the Windows graphics system to drive the printer. That means there is no such thing as a command set or escape codes. GDI printers are OK for single users who only want to drive them from Windows. Networking is often a problem. Use from non-Windows systems or even DOS is generally impossible.

There are reasons why you pay more for PCL compatible printers - and even more (money as well as reasons) for PostScript.
