Q

Saving escape characters

One user writes, "How can I send escape characters to a network printer to change the font, orientation, etc? We currently do this with a printer interface module using "passthrough". When we try to send escape characters (hex 1B) directly to the network attached printer, the host print transform utility appears to strip out these characters even though we code the print file to not replace unprintable characters. Is this an EBCDIC to ASCII translation issue?" iSeries printing and Output expert Chip Milosch responds.
