Yes, I know, I've used it. It's a simple page description language that tries to emulate a printer canvas. That was what the next part of the post was about.

My point being that behaviour of those printers is well-understood, there's a minimum of new work or reverse engineering to be done.

Minimal Googling suggests that all you need is a simple terminal emulator (or Netcat etc., depending on the physical connection)... IOW much the same as most other devices of this type.

Hello, could you tell the printer model?
It's Zebra printer.

WHAT MODEL OF ZEBRA?

...and if you say "odd-toed ungulate" I shall scream.
