Anybody out there using "Code V" and/or "Magnum" to print barcode or other
graphics?

The simple question is:  Is it possible to print a bar code and a line of text
on the same horizontal line?  (The problem is that the entire horizontal area
that the bar code is printed on wipes out any text that "should" print in the
same area.)

Other questions may follow if there's someone out there that's still using
this technology.  ;-)

Some of the details:

I am looking at a manual that is dated back to 1982.  It has a title of "QMS *
Quality Micro Systems, Inc."  Inside it describes a "Magnum controller" which
basically turns a dot matrix line printer into a graphics printer.  You print
graphics by way of including control codes in your print stream from the
AS/400.

The printer itself has a dual identity, presumably manufacturer & reseller:
   Mannessmann Tally
   Model: 691 667026
   Ser#:  T2EFG045812

   IDEA  Part#: B19848-001
         Mod#:  13054-01
         Ser#:  T2EFG045812

I would *greatly* appreciate any help on this topic.
