The Question is:

I'm attempting to build printer control libraries for an HP5000.  And I need to
 lay down the <ESC> sequence with in the library module.  I know theres a way
 to do this with the edit/edt, but I don't remember the keystrokes.  Or better
 yet is there a libra
ry already built for HP5000's laser printers that I could access.  Need to do
 Simplex and Duplex with 80 and 132...both portrait and landscape....
Thank You in advance for your assistance.
