Typeset90-GQ5000

Typeset90-GQ5000 is an additional set of printer drivers for the Text87 Plus4 word-processor.

These printer drivers are designed specifically to make the most of Epson GQ5000 and GQ3500 laser printers, supporting the whole of the QL's international characters and symbols (except for CHR$(175) and CHR$(181) which have been replaced with fractions - 1/2 and 1/4).

The GQ language is quite a change from the ESC/P2 language used on the majority of Epson's printers - the GQ language is very fast, and as a result, Text87 immediately starts printing, even with very complex documents.

This GQ driver also works with Epson EPL 5200 printers, if a separate GQ language board from Epson was installed into the printer.

The drivers support internal scalable and bit-mapped founts.
