    I do know how to read as well as write from the "extended" parallel ports.
    I also know how to read documentation. The new HP Printers do not run
    HPGL (Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language), ASCII, or any "known" protocol
    Instead, they run a Windows-Specific Protocol which is proprietary to
    Microsoft.

    If you, or others, have "busted their secret codes", it makes no
    difference. You will not be able to use this hard-won knowledge except
    for your personal entertainment.

    I will not comment on this subject further.

    Cheers,
