I really have no time for any development, however small, on this.  Too many other 
higher priority projects on my list.  These printers are used by many people, however 
infrequently, so having the printer attached and driven from a single workstation is 
not attractive, though I might be able to get somebody else to do that setup work.  I 
don't know how people would like using central workstations for generating labels.  I 
suppose I could have an old PC logged into our UniData application and somehow drive 
the printer from the server, but I don't know how to do that, though there was a 
recent thread that might be relevant.  Yes, I could write an application that would 
send the correct control sequences and I don't think it would take much time (only 
because I've done a very similar task at another company), but that's not a zero time 
project, either.

Guess I'll have to recommend that we just upgrade to a better text printer for now.

Thanks for your ideas, Karjala

Hey Karjala,

Why not just purchase something like a Dymo SE300 label printer and put it
on a Windows workstation, connected to the network running the U2
application? ...

I'm running UniData 5.2.15 on AIX 4.3.2 but will be going to UniData 6.0.9
on Solaris 2.8.  We have two stand alone Epson LX300+ 9 pin dot matrix
printers we use to print labels.  They are defined as generic (ASCII)
devices.  The printers are old and the output is acceptable, at best.

I'd like to replace the printers with label printers that will print on peel
off labels of roll stock.  ...

Thanks, Karjala
