iSeries to PC printing on HP printers

How can I send an Escape <esc> seq in RPG so the printer can understand? Is it HEX 27 or ASCII 027?
You can code any sequence you want in RPG using the syntax X'ff' where ff is the hex code you need. For example, you could code: EVAL MYDATA = X'27' to load up mydata with hex 27.
