Not sure of Epson ones, but there is one for the Apple Imagewriter I/ADMP which is part of LisaEm.
It's based on a C-Itoh 8510 (I think). So if that's enough for your needs, you could rip out that piece of LisaEm and use it.

If you have full docs on specific Epson printers that you're looking to emulate, somewhere on the net, that might be useful too. Received on 2010-02-01 11:18:08
