I am developing a POS system.  I have a top of the line sales receipt printer (The Epson T88iii) connected to LPT1.
I am trying to figure out what escape code sequences/characters that I can send to this printer.  It did not ship
with any programming manual. Does anyone know where I can get help sending escape sequences to this printer.
epson t88iii.

I see information in the internet indicating that there should be an ocx provided to aid in programming. I have not located this.

Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, I have reviewed T88 information and actually uses ESC/POS language, which apparently is not public available.

I see there are many printers with ESC POS capability like Star Micronics's.
Have a look to :

Also visit www.posworld.com and review the manual of printers (not epson) with ESC POS capability.
