On some versions of unix there's an emit command.  Slackware 8.0 hasn't
got it, but if your version does it's really easy to use and send any
character you wish to any device.  You have to know the characters hex
value and put the hex value on a line and direct it to the output device.
Something like: emit 27 80 65 >lp0 would send an escape character followed
by a [ followed by an upper case A character to the first printer port.
