Learning About the Font Card Kits
These instructions describe the font cards, explain how to install
a font card in your printer, and explain how to create text using
the single-byte or double-byte fonts it contains. Each font card
contains a package of fonts. For example, one font card contains
Japanese fonts.
These instructions are common for a series of font cards. This
section describes the font card for the EasyCoder PF2i and PF4i
and PF4ci printers, the EasyCoder PM4i printer, and the
EasyCoder PX4i and PX6i printers.
• EasyCoder PF2i, PF4i, PF4ci, and PM4i printers must be
running Intermec Fingerprint v8.00 (or later).
• EasyCoder PX4i and PX6i printers must be running Intermec
Fingerprint v8.30 (or later).
Each font card kit contains:
• CompactFlash font card.
• these installation instructions.

Installing the Font Card
1 Switch off the printer.
2 Carefully insert the font card in the memory card slot at the
rear of the printer. To protect the card from removal or theft,
it can be covered with an optional protection plate.
Example: EasyCoder PF2i Printer
3 Switch on the printer.

Font Card Installation Instructions
As soon as the initiation process is completed, the printer will be
able to use the font on the card. The font is available as long as
the card remains inserted in the memory card slot.
Using the Fonts in the Font Card
This section describes how to use the fonts stored in the font
card.
Confirming the Contents of a Font Card
To confirm the contents of the card, select the Fingerprint
application in Intermec Shell (see the printer user’s guide) and
issue these instructions:
FILES "card1:"
yields for example:
Files on card 1:

The .uff file is the only file that varies between different font
cards. The .uff file will create two files on the device "rom:"; one
.bin file that contains the actual font and one .ncd file that
contains the character set for the font. To see the .bin and .ncd
files, issue these instructions:
FILES "rom:"
yields for example:

Font Files and Fonts
Fingerprint will identify the .bin file as a font file and display the
name of the font or fonts it contains when the instruction
FONTS is sent. For example, the font file dfst-m3.bin contains
the Song font. Use the font name when sending the FONT or
FONTD instructions to specify which font you want to use.
Use the FONTS instruction like this:

Single- and Double-Byte Fonts
Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew, and Arabic fonts are single-byte fonts.
That is, each letter, number, or punctuation mark (glyph) is
specified by a decimal ASCII value between 032 and 256 (000031 are non-printable control characters). The relationship
between glyph and ASCII value is decided by a character set.
Most Asian fonts are double-byte fonts. That is, each glyph is
specified by a combination of two one-byte ASCII decimal
values. This combination allows more than 65,000 different
glyphs to be used. Each font has its own character set.
Fingerprint has different instructions for single- and double-byte
fonts:
• FONT specifies a single-byte font
• NASC specifies a single-byte character set
• FONTD specifies a double-byte font
• NASCD specifies a double-byte character set
Also refer to the Intermec Fingerprint Command Reference Manual
(P/N 937-005-xxx).

Creating Double-Byte Text
The Fingerprint instruction CHR$ specifies ASCII values that
cannot be typed on the keyboard of the host. For example,
CHR$(65) specifies the ASCII decimal value 065, which will
yield an uppercase A when using a Latin character set.
Double-byte fonts use the same principle, but specify two ASCII
values instead of one. The first character above ASCII 127
decimal is interpreted as the first byte in a double-byte glyph.
This example shows how to print three simplified Chinese
glyphs. Be careful to specify the double-byte font before the
character set.
FONTD "Song", 18
NASCD "GB2312.NCD"
A$=CHR$(176)+CHR$(163)+CHR$(176)+CHR$(164)+CHR$(176
)+CHR$(65)
PRTXT A$
PRINTFEED
For other examples, LOAD and LIST the demonstration
program 972570xx.prg.
For some Fingerprint versions, you might have trouble when
switching from double-byte to single-byte fonts. If the single-byte
font is not using a single-byte character set, add the instruction
NASCD"".
Demonstration Program
Double-byte font cards contain a demonstration program that
lets you print the font on the card plus samples of all other
double-byte fonts on the font card.
To use the demonstration program
1 Insert the card and start up the printer.
2 When the Shell countdown menus appear, press Enter. The
following menu appears:
SHELL

3 Press Enter and the display shows:

4 Press the F3/right arrow key repeatedly until this menu
appears:
SEL. APPLICATION
972570xx.PRG
5 Press Enter. You have now entered a loop where you can scroll
back and forth using the F1/left arrow and F3/right arrow
keys respectively to select one of the double-byte fonts.
6 Press Enter to print the font. The “For demo print” option
prints the font stored on the inserted font card, whereas the
remaining options print samples of the other double-byte
fonts.
