Default How do I manually load firmware in OpenBSD?

I have an HP LaserJet 1018 that does not have persistent firmware. Instead, I must upload the firmware to the printer every time it is switched on. I have the firmware file ("sihp1018.dl") but I do not know how to load it to /dev/ulpt0 (the printer's device node).

In linux it would be a simple case of cat sihp1018.dl > /dev/ulpt0 but I cannot seem to do this in OpenBSD.
