What is epsprint
Epsprint is a very simple utility which prints text files on your
epson-compatible dot matrix printer, like `cat file |lpr' ;-) But this
program allows you to choose quality, font and spacing. You can use
this program as a printer filter.

- Download epsprint from ftp.
- extract it (e.g. bzip2 -dc epsprint-x.y.tar.bz2 |tar xvf -). If you
don't have bzip2, download it from www.bzip2.org.
- Compile it (make all).
- Install it (make install).
- ...and test whether epsprint works with your printer (./epstest|lpr).
Everything is AFAIK described in epsprint(1) manual page so read it. If you
discover any problem or incompatibility, please let me know. If this program
works fine with your printer and `epstest' was successful, mail me too please.
Do not forget to write your printer's name and other useful info.
I am looking for EPSON printer control codes specification or something similar.My printer can do a lot of things (use better fonts, ...) but I don't know how
can I use them.
