Listing of PJL commands that AppSocket uses

Command Notes
@PJL SET JOBNAME = “x” Extracts the jobname between the quotes, used for jobname
@PJL SET USERNAME = “x” Extracts the username between quotes, used for job metadata
@PJL SET COPIES = x Extracts the digits following the equal sign, used for job metadata
@PJL SET JOBIDVALUE = x Extracts the digits following the equal sign for the job-specific ID value
@PJL SET TIMEOUT = x Extracts the digits following the equal, used for job timeout
@PJL SET variable = value Updates the stored value for a variable name; if the emulation defines the variable then a “current” field is added; otherwise, we create the variable and value
@PJL DEFAULT COPIES = x Extracts the digits following the equal, used for job metadata
@PJL DEFAULT JOBIDVALUE = x Extracts the digits following the equal sign for the job-specific ID value
@PJL DEFAULT TIMEOUT = x Extracts the digits following the equal, used for job timeout
@PJL JOB Any of the following are used if present: NAME, START and END
@PJL EOJ If status readback is turned on for JOB then RPM generates a status readback which includes the JOBID value
@PJL INFO type RPM generates a response using the printer emulation, except FILESYS which gets a response indicating there is no file system
@PJL INQUIRE setting RPM returns the current value for the setting, either from the emulation or any SET operations which added or updated a value
@PJL DINQUIRE setting RPM returns the default value for variables in the emulation
@PJL ECHO string RPM returns the value of “string”
@PJL USTATUS args RPM tracks the possible values for USTATUS DEVICE, JOB, PAGE, and TIMED. We discuss this in the section “PJL status readbacks supported by RPM”
@PJL USTATUSOFF Turns off all USTATUS responses
@PJL DMINFO x RPM ignores DMINFO by returning the “?” response
@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE x RPM stores the language in the format metadata. If USTATUS JOB is ON then RPM generates a response.
