How to use Unix PCL code



Unix PCL codes are used to change character, font and paper tray for HP 16/600 laser printer. At your workstation, code this:

% Begin PostScript code
/LaserJetIII  /ProcSet findresource
/FontReport get exec
% End PostScript code

This is how to change to different trays:

  1. To select tray 1:

<esc> & l # 1

The l=lowercase L

    2. To select tray 2:

<esc> & l # 2

How to use Unix PCL code



In VI, you use the CTRL-v key to eliminate the unique significance for the next person. So to put in the codes: ESC &l4H, you commence  with an empty computer file, key into place figures, then CTRL-v then the ESCAPE key (which places ^ [ on your screen) followed by &l4H. Then hit the ESCAPE key again and preserve the computer file.

Or you can do it like this without VI:

Echo "33&l4H" > tray2. Pcl

Now you can use cat:

Cat tray2. Pcl file-to-print | lpr -Pprinter_name

Note: lpr is not an LP. On HP-UX, lpr is a wrapper for lp that looks like lpr. However, -otray2 is not legitimate for the lpr wrapper and won't perform on HP-UX if you do not access the HP printing device straight with HPPI application.
