I wrote apps that took in data, and out came postscript code to go to the printer. It's been almost 2 decades but from start to finish of that app it took me a year. Not that I worked on it everyday but it takes awhile to write code like that.
So while I have the understanding I find that many today need an answer now. Not in the next few weeks. Let Canon do the work here. Make the call, have the plastic ready.
Sorry in advance if this is confusing. I'll try to explain my situation as best I can.
My workplace is switching from printing on a Kodak printer to a Canon model, effective very soon. Most of the jobs we print pull paper from multiple trays throughout the job. On the Kodak machine, we have paper tray names defined right on the machine, and then my programs contain commands to switch trays wherever necessary.
Problem is, I can't for the life of me understand how to do the same with the Canon machine. I was given a manual containing dozens of print commands, but that only takes me so far. I tried running a job with some of these new commands but all I got was a "postscript typecheck" error, citing one of the new terms as the problem.
I'm supposed to have a contact person who understands all this, but he is perpetually unavailable, and my bosses are expecting me to be up to speed on this yesterday. Does anybody have any suggestions for me? I'm sorry if I didn't explain things so well, but it's a complex issue. If you need more info, I'll be happy to provide it.
