I come from the old days of writing PCL printer driver codes into the
program. Things like "\e(s5B" to turn on bold. I've recently realized that
there must be a better way and am looking for the solution.
I have briefly snooped around foomatic and gimp-print and can see that there
is a better way to send specific codes at certain parts of my print
print PRINTER "$FONT1 This is normal $BOLDON and this is bold
This works if I know the correct PCL codes.
I'm simply missing the connection on where I can setup PERL to read the
printer's database and allow me to plug in the codes I need to send. I'm
just looking for a place to start.
TIA - Steve
