How to setup an E-Business Suite PCL Based (non-Postscript ready) printer using the Pasta utility in order to print seeded and custom reports registered in the “Text” output format.
Note 1: Neither Pasta or the following configuration will convert the output from a concurrent program registered in the bitmap format (Postscript, PDF, HTML, etc) to ASCII Text. Reports registered in a bitmap format will require a printer that understand and supports the selected bitmap language.
Since most printers and/or applications do not fully support the UTF8 character set yet, Pasta can be configured to produce an output file in a character set that the printer supports.
