Is it possible to embed and/or print esc sequences when outputting a print
file. I can't find a way.
I would like to set up a table that contains the escape sequences for
compressed printer, etc for different printers. When I do this and select an
escape sequence from the table and attempt to print using it I get the
literal string, i.e. \033&k2s (which is exactly what is in the table - the
column is defined as a char).
If I assign the string to a char variable in the program i.e., LET xstr =
"\033&k2S" and then print using this variable ( PRINT xstr CLIPPED, "THIS IS
COMPRESSED") then the text string is printed in compressed format.
I also tried setting the value in the column to \\033&k2S (attempting to
escape the escape character) but this didnot work either.
I know I've seen this done where it works, and believe that several years
ago I did this. But for the life of me I cannot recall how. Anyone have any
ideas and/or suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
