Here's what I was able to come up with in terms of the proposed
PrtInterpreterLangFamilyTC enumeration's. I have a couple of concerns.

1. These enumeration's deviate from the current PrtInterpreterLangFamilyTC
objects that are listed. The current 55 enumeration's do not list company
names as the following shows. Does the PWG want to set this new precedent?
2. If the answer to the first question is yes, is the underscore character
legal?

langIntermec_IPL(tbd), -- Intermec Printer Language for label printers.
-- Technical Manual: "IPL Programmers
Reference
-- Manual", No. TBD
-- Intermec Corporation
-- Contact: Bill Kelly
email:bkelly@intermec.com

langUBI_Fingerprint(tbd), -- An intelligent basic-like programming
-- language for label printers.
-- Reference Manual: "UBI Fingerprint
-- 7.1", No. 1-960434-00
-- United Barcode Industries
-- Hakan Berglund

langUBI_DirectProtocol(tbd), -- An intelligent control language for
-- label printers.
-- Programmers guide: " UBI Direct
-- Protocol", No. 1-960419-00
-- United Barcode Industries

I agree with Ira's 'scoping' comment and support the enums:

> langIntermecIPL
> langUBIFingerprint
> langUBIDirectProtocol

As for the details, I have been working on gathering up the "name of a
standard or formal spec for each language." As soon as this is available, I
will post the information. Also, I will contact Lloyd via phone.

Thanks for everyone's support!

I do not object to the inclusion of the new enums from Jeff Rackowitz,
but I agree with Ira that the information provided is incomplete.

Jeff needs to provide additional information ASAP.
