Rimage DTP-4500 RAS 13 Serial Control Commands

A continuation of one of my previous projects. http://www.ragingcomputer.com/2012/06/rimage-dtp-4500-ras-13-initialization-sequence

Each command starts with the nonprintable ascii character ESC (x1B) and ends with a capital C.
Each reply starts with the nonprintable ascii character ESC (x1B) and ends with EOT (x04). Since that looks pretty ugly in a terminal, I replace ESC with a + sign and the EOT with an = sign.

In the known command list, the commands aren’t indented and the known replies are indented.

I smacked together a little bit of perl to verify I was understanding the commands correctly.

$ob->write("x1B" . $ARGV[0]);

$DONE++;
