MacWise - Macintosh Terminal Emulation - telnet / serial for OS X - Wyse, Viewpoint, VT100, VT220

MacWise Version 12.14
Now Supports Direct PCL Printing

MacWise12.14 now supports direct PCL printing

When PCL commands are included in the print job sent from the host to MacWise, the host can control printer features such as bold text, lines per inch, margins and much more. When this option is enabled in Printer Setup under the FIle Menu, the standard Mac Print dialog box is bypassed and the print job is sent directly to the Mac default printer.

Here is a table showing some of the more common PCL commands.
