List of PCL parameterised escape sequences - part 1 by DansDadUK
Posted: 9 Apr 08 (Edited 9 Apr 08)

The following table shows brief details of parameterised PCL escape sequences (part 1).
A companion FAQ shows part 2 (the details are too much to include in one entry).

If the description of the sequence is prefixed with "*", this indicates that it is considered to be obsolete.

Note that few (if any) printers will support all of the sequences; most of them are relevant to laser printers, but some are only meaningful to inkjet devices.

Parameterised sequences - part 1:

Where the sequence is expected to have discrete values, the known enumeration values (and their meanings) are given for each such value.
