'[PIC]: Driving a regular inkjet printer from a PIC'

You need to know what PDL (Page Description Language) the printer speaks. If
its a "winprinter" it only understands bit map images. It its an HP it
probably does PCL3 and some of the Epsons so also... older ones anyway. PCL3
is a subset of PCL5 which I have pretty complete docs for at:
http://www.piclist.com/techref/language/pcls

I don't have information on the "winprinter" data formats.

You need to find out what the printer speaks.

I think a chart recorder would be doable in PCL5 using line drawing commands
rather than bit mapped graphics... interesting idea.
