ASCII data sending issue via AWA or AWT at SLC5/05 CPU


Thanks in advance.

How can I send more than 82 characters using AWA or AWT?
to Zepra Printer via serial Rs232 communication?

Normally I can send the data up to 82 characters but I need to send more than 82 characters.

I designed barcode using Zebra programming language and there are more than 82 characters (Text file) that i need to send to Zebra printer to print.

By the way,My ascii knowledge is limited...

My Cpu is slc5/05 and using serial Port 0 on CPU...

Can you break up the date into multiple strings, and then send the strings in sequence?

i) Take care of the bits, and the bytes will take care of themselves.
ii) There is no software problem that cannot be solved with another layer of indirection.
iii) Measurement is hard.
iv) I solemnly swear that I am up to no good
v) I probably have the highest ratio of forum posts to actual applications in the field (∞).
vi) Hakuna matata.
