Printing Barcodes on a Sharp MX printer

Nov 20, 2018

I have 5 Sharp MX printers and print directly to them using LPR. All fine so far. However I am trying to print a simple bar code but I am unable to get it to work, I am able to do this on my many Kyocera printers using their Prescribe language as follows :-
print "!R!"
print "UNIT C;"
print "BARC 23,"
print "Y,"
print "'";r1_a_ordno;"'"
print ", 0.5, 0.5"
print ";EXIT;"
The r1_a_ordno is a variable that contains the data I want to print.

I have tried to recreate this using PCL on the Sharp but to no avail.
Ideally it would be great if some one out there could post a complete example of PCL code that will allow me to print a bar code on my Sharp printers. I can use 128 or code39 barcodes.

Thanks in anticipation
