CHR ESC sequence for my app in PowerBuilder?

Hi :

I have developed an application in power builder 12.5 and it works fine. My point is when I print a receipt . I want the application to print that out and immediately cut the paper.

I have seen several options for chr codes but I would like to know... how to apply those codes effectively inside the script. by the way the printer is an EPSON TM-U220A receipt printer...

ANy idea how to apply those codes so the paper will be cutted automatically?

Thanks!!
