Need examples of BOCA printer language in RPG3

Need examples of BOCA printer language in RPG3

I need to convert RPG3 code from printing labels with ZEBRA printers to BOCA code. Have a very skimpy programming manual downloaded from BOCA, but no hints on AS/400 code. Current programs have all ZEBRA commands in O specs, eg

@CTL - HEX CONTROL CODE = CARET CHARACTER ^ defined as follows:-
C                     BITOF'01234567'@CTL    1
C                     BITON'02346'   @CTL      

INIT coding for each ticket printed
OCIB907PAE                #INIT                       
O                                      '&%'           
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'XA'           
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'LH000,000'    
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'CF0,30,24'    
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'FWR'          
O*** R3.09K - LABEL LENGTH = 8"                       
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'LL1626'       
O*** END - PRINT TICKET INSTRUCTION                   
O        E                #END                        
O                         @CTL                        
O                                      'XZ&%'         
First part of ticket -
O*** PA6 - LEFT STUB OF TICKET                        
O*** EVENT                                            
O        E                #PA6                        
O                         @CTL                    
O                                      'FO100,040' <-positioning
O                         @CTL                    
O                                      'A0N,30,24' <- font size
O                         @CTL                    
O                                      'FD'        <-data field marker
O                         I@SN                     <-data itself
O                         I@SNS                   
O                         @CTL                    
O                                      'FS'        <-end of data field

I can work out the positioning, fonts, etc myself, but does anyone know if BOCA needs initialisation and end codes like ZEBRA (see code under #INIT and #END above)
