PCL5 and Barcode
Message #1 Posted by Roberto Sozzi on 12 Jan 2000, 2:41 p.m.

Hi, Anybody knows how to print barcode with a laserjet using PCL5 commands and not buying specific SIMM ?

I want to use direct PCL commands not Windows drivers

Think like I'm going to put escape sequences using DOS Basic

(Actualy I have to send hexadecimal characters through RPG and AS/400)

Thank in advance

Just use the normal graphics commands that the HP printer understands (Just like we all grew up on right?)

I can find a summary of them and post it of you like? Otherwise just look in the manual -- oh, I forgot HP don't provide this useful information any more :-(

email me at shodges at wantree dot com dot au and I'll see what I can drag up.
