That looks like commands sent to a Century Eagle label printer. It appears to say:

{D1531,1000,1501|} Set label pitch to 153.1mm, width 100.0mm, height 150.1mm.

{C|} Clear the image buffer

{U2;0130|} Reverse feed by 13.0mm

{D1531,1000,1501|} Set label pitch to 153.1mm, width 100.0mm, height 150.1mm.

{AX;+000,+000,+00|} Adjust label position and so on...

I'm assuming that this was interpreted by something that changed { to ESC, | to LF and } to NIL.


I wish HN allowed giving something more tangible than just +1


Pay it forward by helping someone else.


For completeness I turned this into a little blog-lesson about searching the web.

I mean .... how could you know that ? Really ... how ?




That was posted by me to find no satisfying answers.
