This requires knowledge of the printer’s control codes. Some printers
are
controllable solely by way of their data stream, some are not. If you
knew
the specifics of the printer, and you knew it could be controlled
entirely
through its data stream, then a pure Ruby program could be written to
control it.

It looks like you can download a user manual for it from

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?

The user manual link is above this description:

This document contains an overview of the product, basic and in-depth
usage instructions, information on using options, specifications, and
control code information.

With that information it should be possible to get something going.
