Create PCL5 print from a COBOL program

I need to create PCL5 print from a COBOL program, but I don't know how to send the commands to the printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You must create the printer file as a type *USERASCII instead of *SCS or *IFPDS and perform your own translations from EBCDIC to ASCII codes. This will trigger the system to send the print data stream unchanged directly to the printer.
