total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

(OP)
I can determine what version of pcl is being used by just looking at the file?

RE: total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

By file I assume you mean a captured print file.

It is probably stated in one of thr PJL commands at the beginning of the print job.

PCL3, PCL5, PCL6, PCL-XL etc.

(OP)
yes print to file.

I was afraid of that.  The file that I have contains no headers

it appears to be 161 to 162 characters wide
grouped in pairs
1st line formatting rules
2nd line output data

esc=? ....for abbr. purposes. I think its an esc anyways
the file as follows
?E    
blankline
?&12S
blankline
?&15h
blankline
blankline
(8 lines)?blankline(s)
??(s0p12v020b4099T    &k12.00H
[data thats printed]

what do you think? Is it pcl?

RE: total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

It is definitely PCL.

I would guess that it is PCL5.

There appears to be a duplexing and tray command.

If you are looking at it in a text editor you might be better to look at the file in a hex editor that may show something in those "blank" lines.

I would agree though that from what you posted it appears
to be pcl5 or below.

RE: total newb: is there a way to determine pcl version

(OP)
I did they are all '20'
thanks for the info guys
