scs2ascii - convert IBM SCS printer data into ASCII




This program handles the conversion from an SCS print stream from an AS/400 printer emulation to something suitable for sending to lpr. It is only intended for use with lp5250d.

When using host print transform with lp5250d, scs2ascii will remove the remaining characters from the SCS print stream to leave only the data intended for the printer.
