I have a 1520.  It uses a pretty much different char set.

I actually have 2.  Anyone in the market for one?

The list of codes probably does not apply to anything other than dot
matrix printers.

I checked the "canonical list".  It has a 1520 plotter that is 4 inches
wide.  I know someone that still has one, but he's on vacation.
There is also a 8075 plotter listed.  This was probably an off the shelf
HP plotter with no Commodore commands.

The codes definitely do not apply to the 6400 and 8300 daisy wheel
printers.  I remember when Commodore was selling the 6400 with the
parallel interface.  I was installing 6400 printers for the Commodore
users and F10-40 printers for The IBM users.  If you took the covers off,
they were identical.  Also, the Commodore 8300P is nothing more than a
Diablo 630 with the optional IEEE-488 interface.
