AS/400 >> Instructions on how set up a Zebra LP 2844-Z

Hi all

I just thought I'd post this so that it might help someone else in the
future.

1. When setting up the LP 2844-Z on your PC do not use their driver,
just give it the generic text printer driver.

2. Using notepad copy this ZPL and print it.

%XZ
%XA
%XFAS400T-2.ZPL
%FN998%FD$PTNO$%FS
%PQ1,0,1,N
%XZ
%FX

This should have produced a label for you, so you've now proved the
printer works..
NB It will have changed the Karet '^' to '%'.

3. Set up an OUTQ on the AS400.

I don't know whether it's peculiar to the LP 2844-Z, but it didn't
work on the AS400 until the Karet was changed from '^' to '%'.

Cheers

No - its just plain peculiar. Our zebra printers of model 160S
attached though a jet network box require a cent sign (at least on my
screen it appears as a small c with a line through) & we cant print
pound signs. (Thats the fancy L we use for currency in the UK) It may
just be a codepage problem but its too late now - all the programs etc
have been coded & theres no going back for us. I think I did fix the
caret once in test by adjusting codepages but the other live outqs
were already setup & so no change. In our manual there is a command to
change the caret eg ^CC% so future comands require a leading %. Just
the opposite for you. I couldnt find an escape char so if I send
strings with the caret it fails miserably, although the users dont
know how to enter a cent sign - yet.

Hi Johnathan

All you have to do is to send it down as hex.

11 '%FO20,10%AD'
28 '%FH%FD_9C?$%FS'

This was a test we ran successfully yesterday.

Hi all

I thought my previous post might have been confusing, so this is the
code used for printing a pound sign: -

%FO20,10%AD'%FH%FD_9C%FS

HTH.

Thanks - Will try later. - but its a pain to have to scan each product
description & may not make it into production.

5. AMD published R600 instruction set.

6. Intel Pentium, AMD K5 and Cyrix 686 IA-32 Instruction Sets

When I was sold the AMD K5, and Cyrix 686 processors, I was lead to 
believe that they were instruction set compatible with the Intel Pentium,
apart from four rarely used instructions relating to Intel 
Pentium pipeline management. (I never got round to looking at these.)

However, some of my computers are now producing errors related to 
invalid instructions in vendor supplied binaries, that are supposed to be 
compatible with 486 machines. (In particular, the Debian supplied Linux 
kernel is affected.)

I could do with knowing what instructions are supported and not 
supported on the AMD K5 and the Cyrix 686 each of the three chips, 
because I suspect that there are differences outside the realm of 
pipeline management.
