Best PCL Communications with Printer?

» close window

The Question is:

How and/or what is the best way to send PCL commands to printers?

The Answer is :

  Via telegraph, telephone, stenographer and courier, network, dog sled,
  signal flags, or whatever appropriate communications mechanism is
  available?  (And never underestimate the bandwidth of a truckload of
  DVD+R disks -- the latency isn't so good, but the bandwidth is huge.)
  If you wish to see an example of PCL commands and particularly the use
  of the device control library mechanism that are available within the
  OpenVMS printing environment, please see topics (1020), (2771), and
  (5271) here in the Ask The Wizard area.
