I'm trying to send pcl codes to perfore pages. I've found the <ESC>&l0L and <ESC>&l1L codes but their rule seems  only to define appropriate margins.

Does anyone knows how to "say" to the printer to act the processus of perforation ?

Thank You

RE: Perforation

The commands you mention arre to disable and enable 'skip perforation' mode.

All this does, as you have discovered, is to allow, or prevent, access to the region at bottom of one page/top of the next, which might normally be considered as a margin area.

The PCL language does not include any command to cause the printer to actually create perforations in the paper.
