Font and Settings for (Unknown) Printer?

» close window

The Question is:

How can I change the font, particularly the character size, on a laser printer,
 through a VMS queue, unsing a PRINT command?....I am printing directly from
 the alpha....

The Answer is :

  The gargantuan number of printers that exist is seemingly only exceeded
  by the number of differing printer interface schemes that exist.
  For information on your particular printer, please check the printer
  documentation or the printer vendor.  Specifically check for command
  sequence details, for setup menu information, and related minutia.
  If this is a Postscript printer, please use the Postscript commands to
  change the size or font.  If using a converter to generate Postscript,
  you will have to determine how the host application performs this.
  For an introduction to device control libraries and printer-related
  topics (and particularly network printers), please start with a review
  of topic (1020), and see topics such as (4222) and (6597).
