General Plumbing Supply seeks a programmer to modify an existing custom point of sale document printing program written in Rocket Universe Database (PICK) for the Epicor Eclipse ERP software, running on RHEL Linux.
The current program prints two copies of the ship ticket as a single job. Printing all pages of the merchant signature copy on a white preprinted letter size form before printing all pages of the customer copy on 'blue' preprinted forms. Both copies are currently printed as a single job with no stapling options. The modification would separate the two copies into separate print jobs with options for copies going to separate output trays and stapling one or both copies.
Most locations currently have laser printers without output tray or stapling options, but we are phasing in MFP machines that have these features, so it would be necessary to provide editable table options per printer location for printer specific option codes, staple/no staple.
Currently the printer PCL-5 source tray selection codes are hard coded and need to be added to an existing table for adaptability to different printer models.
This would involve some PJL programming for HP laser printers to add stapling
and output tray selection.
The Point of Sale document requires modification and testing without impacting the production environment.
The existing program is attached.
