SENDING ESCAPE SEQUENCES IN DOS INTRODUCTION This instruction sheet will explain how to send escape sequences to your printer using the DOS editors EDLIN and EDIT. The escape code is sent in EDLIN by holding down the "Ctrl" key and pressing "V", then pressing the "[" key. A ^[ will show on the screen. In EDIT, the escape code is sent by pressing the "Ctrl", "P", and "Esc" keys in that order and a left arrow will be displayed on the screen. EDLIN EXAMPLE 1. At the C:\ prompt, type EDLIN TEST and press "Enter", an (*) will appear. TEST is the name of the file. 2. Type "I" to insert a line. 3. Enter the escape sequence as shown above followed by the PCL commands. 4. Press "Ctrl", type "C" to end the insert commands; an (*) will then appear. 5. Type "E" and press return to exit and save the file. EDIT EXAMPLE 1. At the C:\ prompt, type EDIT TEST and press "Enter", TEST is the name of the file. 2. Enter the escape sequence as shown above followed by the PCL commands. 3. Press the "Alt" key to access the menu bar, use the arrow keys to save and exit under the File option.
