Seeking custom SYSDEVCTL? (Epson Printer)

» close window

The Question is:

Are there existing text libraries that contain Epson escape codes for the
 different character per inch settings?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is not particularly aware of the general
  availability of device control libraries or library modules for
  particular third-party printers from Compaq OpenVMS Engineering,
  nor the availability of these libraries or modules via media or
  mechanisms such as the OpenVMS Freeware (which might be a useful
  spot, should these libraries be available), nor the availability
  of these libraries on non-Compaq OpenVMS websites.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is also not particularly familiar with the set
  of control sequences that are used and expected by Epson printers.
  That said, the folks at the Compaq Customer Support Center might
  well be familiar with device control libraries and Epson printers.
  (Or they might not...)  Additionally, check for any available
  websites with examples or device control libraries.
  For information on creating a device control library (SYSDEVCTL
  or otherwise) and related topics, please see topics such as 5271.
  Also please see the printer documentation associated with this
  particular printer.
