PDL Reference Guide for the
Xerox WorkCentre 77xx Series
Accessing Extended Features
This document describes how to access the extended features of the WorkCentre 77xx Series in environments for which
Xerox does not make a custom driver.
Note: Some of the commands and syntax used in this document requires familiarity with either PostScript (PS) or Printer
Command Language (PCL).
This document provides the Printer Description Language (PDL) commands and syntax for each feature. The following
tables are also included:
features supported by the WorkCentre 77xx Series
commands to use in a PCL print job
commands to use in a PS print job
This document is not intended as a PS or PCL reference manual, but a guide for using the extended features in PS, PCL or
ASCII print jobs.
Using this Guide
1. Refer to the Feature List for the feature you wish to implement. Select the page number to jump to that page.
2. Follow the syntax listed for the command you selected. Read the "Dependencies/Caveats" section. You can access
features using several methods:
PCL or PS commands
PJL SET commands
Xerox specific COMMENT command.
PCL and ASCII print jobs can use PJL commands or PCL commands to access the attributes of the device. If there is more
than one method listed to access a specific feature, determine the best method for your application and use that method.
PostScript print jobs can use Document Structuring Commands (DSC) or PS commands. If there is more than one method
listed to access a specific feature, determine the best method for your application and use that method.
For this document, both PJL COMMENT and DSC are referred to as Comment commands.
