Hi Fumio,

 

I can not remember exactly how each of them made it s way onto the list,
but some entries are from the 1284 ID information returned by some of
the printers I have come across. Others from the OpenPrinting DB (there
where a lot in some old version of it) and similar. And some just from
the web or mailing lists. There might also be some that where added to
the wiki by other people.

 

Please feel free to update and extend the information! Just hit the edit
button ;)

 

If there are old or deprecated values, they should still be in the list,
but they could be marked as obsolete. If there are incorrect values,
they should of course be removed or updated. All possible values (new
and deprecated) should be included into the list, so the list can be
used by application developers (CUPS, OpenPrinting, "Some Commercial
Vendor") to map the correct feature provided by a given printer (also
the exotic).

If, for instance, you feel that there are values that should be avoided
in future, you could mark them as "deprecated" or similar.

 

Please also feel free to add any documentation you might have about page
description languages and communication protocols. If you have some old
manuals about some old deprecated Epson PDL that would be nice too (This
can be used to support legacy applications)

Hi Chris,

 

After I reviewed your page, I found some of old or incorrect Epson
entities,

and I am just curious how you could find these information.

 

I passed this information to my engineer and can we request to correct
some of entities?

I suppose we need around 10 days for internal reviewing of all products.

 

Thank you so much and kind regards,

	Hi,

	 

	I try to maintain a list of found IEEE 1284 Device ID COMMAND
SET values on the following page:

	 

	
http://www.undocprint.org/formats/communication_protocols/ieee_1284#comm
and_set

	 

	So you might find some inspiration there.

	 

	Best regards,

	Christoph Lindemann

IANAPrtInterpreterLangFamilyTC

	 

	 Greetings:

	 

	At the February WIMS  Face-to-face meeting, it was agreed that,
in line with the standization of the IEEE 1284 Device ID COMMAND SET
entry, it would be desirable to have standard terms  to identify more of
the prevalent PDL types and versions. The most reasonable way to do this
is to add them to the PrtInterpreterLangFamilyTC in the IANA Printer MIB
(http://www.iana.org/assignments/ianaprinter-mib)

	 

	It was suggested that JDF, JMF and PPML be  added.

	 

	It was also suggested that new entrys be added to be able to
distinguish between significantly different versions of common PDLs.
Suggestions were:

	PS2, PS3, PCL3, PCL5e, PCL6 and various versions of PDF ( ISO
19005 [PDF/a], ISO32000 [PDF1.7], PDF1.3, PDF1.5 and PDF/is were
mentioned).

	 

	We are soliciting comments on whether these additions are proper
and sufficient, or whether there are other common interpreter languages
or variations that are sufficiently different from those already listed
that should be included. 

	 

	Please send your comments to wims at pwg.org.

	 

	Thanks,

	 

	Bill Wagner
