If you ancient app generates only plain ASCII files (with CR, LF, and FF
as the only controls), I could give you a piece of PostScript code which
emulates a "dump" line printer. It can be configured to print at any LPI
and CPI
values (and simulates monospaced printing even with non-monospaced

But if your app generates the PCL control codes by itself, it will be -
possible - a tedious task (I just emulated an old Facit hammer printer
by PostScript
code, and it took me 2 weeks of development).
