Printer Queue setting to select OUTBIN

Hi,

 

We have a HP laserjet 600 m602 printer with a 5 bin mailbox cc997A.

Before I print a document I want to select the output bin of the mailbox.

 

I want to create 5 printer queues (one for each output bin)  on I64 OpenVMS 8.4 and for each job that will be printed the output bin should be selected by the printer queue.

 

I think I can select the output bin with PJL (print job language code).

 

Example:

ESC%-12345X

@PJL SET OUTBIN=OPTIONALOUTBIN2

@PJL SET FINISH=NONE

ESC%-12345X

 

How can I create a printer queue on OpenVMS that first will send the outbin commands to the printer before it starts to print the job.


I have read something about device control library.

How to use that?

Or is there a print parameter that can select the output bin?
