PCL Macro on printer hard drive.

PCL Macro on printer hard drive.

We are currently testing an inline macro as a PCL overlay. We would like to load the macro to the hard drive of our Xerox N.. printers and be able to call up the macro in subsequent prints. Howto?

RE: PCL Macro on printer hard drive.

My guess is that you will have to ask Xerox. You are
talking about a hard drive internal to the printer,
aren,t you?

Normally, you would use the HP Resource manager software
to handle this and maybe it will work, but I suspect that
HP might have it set to only work with their printers.
I would try that first. Let us know if that works. You
should be able to download the Resource Manager from

Otherwise, you will have to bone up on the PJL filesystem
commands. There is a chapter devoted to that in the
PJL Reference Manual.

Took a look at the HP site, but, they state they no longer support Resource Manager. Will look into contacting Xerox and checking PJL Reference.
