PJL & Printer Status

Does anyone know how I can retrieve the printer status from a printer like low toner, out of paper using PJL or any other printer language? I think the printer language is the way to go about that because windows API didn't return the printer statuses correctly.
Please help me!

Re: PJL & Printer Status

You could use PCL - search for "status request" in
h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/bpl13210/bpl13210.pdf

or you could just install hpwebjetadmin
