Print a Euro instead of a Pound by changing symbol set

Print a Euro instead of a Pound by changing symbol set

Hi - I have an old application that is generating a 0x23 = 035 decimal character that prints a pound £ sign. I can't change the app but I can change a definition file that sets PCL commands for things like char set, font, spacing etc.

I changed the symbol set from 1E to 19U to test, and now it prints a hash # symbol.

I would like to print a Euro symbol instead of the pound. Is there some PCL incantation that can map char 128 to 35 for me?


RE: Print a Euro instead of a Pound by changing symbol set

Don't know of any standard symbol set which maps Euro sign (U+20AC) to 0x23 - it's usually mapped to 0x80.

With PCL5, you could perhaps define, download and invoke a user-defined symbol set.
