Setting default font and character set for DOS

I wish to set the default character set from Roman-8 to IBM-US extended ascii in order to print in DOS the extended character like é or â
Can you give me the string to send to the Laserjet 1015 to change the default character
or can I use a setup software to do

Re: Setting default font and character set for DOS

Christopher:

The 1015 is PCL5e-compatible but the Toolbox software won't work with DOS. Therefore, you'll need to send the appropriate commands to the printer from within DOS using PCL commands embedded in a BAT file, I assume.
Here's a link to the PCL manuals:
