  • Page 17: About The Manual

    1. ABOUT THE MANUAL This technical reference manual is intended to help you get the most out of each of the emulation modes supported by your HL-Series printer. It is divided into nine sections - this introductory section and one section for each of the emulation modes.

  • Page 18: Areas Of Use

    2. AREAS OF USE There are several different applications for which you may want to use your HL-Series printer. Four general areas are outlined in the following sections. Using Word Processing Packages and Spreadsheets You may simply wish to use the printer with your software application packages, such as word-processors or spreadsheets.

  • Page 19: Font Development

    Font Development In LaserJet mode you can send your own character designs to an HL-Series printer and print text using them. To do this you need first to design your characters on paper. Having done this you can then either input and download your characters using a commercial software package, or encode your designs numerically and write your own program to download them.

    INTRODUCTION This laser / ink printer provides a complete emulation of the supported Hewlett Packard LaserJet printer. Features include raster and vector graphics, support for bitmap and scalable fonts and page control. There are many resident fonts in the printer and you can gain access to more by inserting a font cartridge/card or the storage device into the printer or by downloading fonts from your computer.

  • Page 30: Controlling The Printer

    CONTROLLING THE PRINTER 3.1. Control Codes Control codes are ASCII codes that tell the printer to perform a given function, such as a carriage return. You can send these codes to the printer as part of a program. 3.1.1. Backspace (08) <08h>...

  • Page 31

    3.2. Escape Sequences Escape sequences, also known as PCL (Printer Control Language) commands, tell the printer which operations to perform. An escape sequence consists of the Esc character followed by a string of characters which define the operation to be performed. Some escape sequences require parameter values. These are included in the sequence as numeric characters.

  • Page 32

    3.2.2. End-of-line wrap If the printer tries to print a line of text that is longer than the width of the text area, the end of the line will normally be lost. However, you can set the printer to flow text onto the next line so that text is not lost. You can turn on the automatic text wrap feature either from the printer's control panel (see the User Guide) or by sending the printer the following escape sequence: Esc&s0C...

  • Page 33

    3.3. Environments 3.3.1. Factory default environment The factory default environment is the collection of printer settings programmed into the printer before it leaves the factory. You can restore the factory default environment using the printer's control panel. See the User's Guide to find how to reset the printer from the printer's control panel. Some settings cannot be restored to the factory default environment with the RESET operation from the printer's control panel.

    4.2.8. Coordinates The printer control language coordinate system has its origin at the intersection of the left edge of the logical page and the top margin. The x-coordinate value of the current cursor position increases as the cursor moves from left to right, the y-coordinate value increases as the cursor moves down the page. The cursor can be explicitly positioned anywhere on the current logical page using the PCL coordinate system.

     # = 3 indicates that delta row compression is to be used. In this method byte sequences identify how each raster row differs from the last row that was transmitted. The first byte identifies the number of consecutive bytes (the value of the most significant 3 bits plus 1) to be changed and the position in the line at which to start substituting the replacement bytes (the least significant 5 bits plus 1).

     # = 9 Mode 9 compression Like mode 3 compression, this mode 9 compression data contains only the difference of the current row from the preceding row. Replacement data often consists of a repetition of a particular byte in mode 3 compression. Mode 9 compression is effective in such cases.

    STATUS READBACK 8.1. Introduction Status readback features are explained in this section. The printer sends a status response message after receiving a request for its status by these commands. You can get the information as shown below from the printer. - available printer (user) memory - current available fonts and symbol sets - the ID numbers of downloaded macros and user-defined patterns to verify their...

  • Page 127: Status Response Syntax

    8.5. Status Response Syntax All of the status responses begin with "PCL", Carriage Return control code and a Line Feed control code. The response is ended by a Carriage Return and a Line Feed control code. At the end of the transaction, status responses are ended by a Form Feed Control code.

    In a font status response, the "SELECT=" keyword line specifies the individual fonts. The font is identified by this line by specifying the font selection characteristics such as symbol set, spacing, pitch, height, style, stroke weight, and typefaces. It returns the "SELECT=" for all font types. In a status response, the five characters "<", "E", "s", "c", and "&>"...

  • Page 130

    "LOCUNIT=" specifies the location unit of the font which is selected at present. The value field of the Set Status Readback Unit command is related to the value returned. For instance, if the printer font which is selected at present is a bold 12 point Presentation bitmap font which is selected from a cartridge, and a font entity request with the location type set to 1 is produced, the response will be returned as follows.

  • Page 131

    For instance, a font extended response with the location type set to 1( selected at present ) where the font which is selected at present is the internal Pc Tennessee (18 point identified for printing) bold, returns the response as follows.

  • Page 132

    Status location type 1 (selected at present) is an incorrect location for unbound font symbol sets and returns an error. Example responses in this section for "SYMBOLSETS=" do not indicate the complete list of symbol sets which are available internally, but only a partial list . The internal symbol sets depend on the printer and might differ according to the printer.

    These stored bitmap characters are known as the font cache. If a Brother HL-Series printer encounters a memory low condition, all of the font cache is automatically deleted. Also, font cache and temporary entities can be cleared by a Printer Reset command.

    INTRODUCTION This chapter describes the enhanced commands for the PCL5C emulation. PCL5C is upwards-compatible with PCL5e. For the commands of PCL5e, refer to "Chapter 2 PCL" which describes the PCL5e emulation. If you are reading this technical manual for the first time, it is recommended that you read Chapter 2 first before reading this Chapter.

  • Page 140: Color Modes

    COLOR MODES The PCL5C emulation provides a B/W mode, which is the default, and three color modes as follows; 1) Simple Color Mode 2) PCL Color Mode 3) HP-GL/2 Color Mode Simple Color Mode allows you to use a maximum of 8 colors easily. PCL Color Mode allows you to use a maximum of 16,000,000 colors logically.

    INTRODUCTION Some of the HL series printers can be used in HP-GL/2 graphics mode to produce vector graphics output using the commands of the HP-GL/2 graphics language or to print out existing HP-GL/2 format images. HP-GL/2 is a part of the PCL emulation, which includes graphics command. The Default plotting measurement unit in the HP-GL/2 graphics mode is 1/1016"...

  • Page 161: Terminology

    TERMINOLOGY 3.1. Picture Frame The printer frame is the rectangular area of the page on which graphic output can be printed. This is based on the logical page defined for the selected paper size. 3.2. Anchor Point The anchor point of the picture frame is the top left hand corner of the frame. This can be moved on the page using PCL language page control commands.

  • Page 162: Absolute And Relative Plotting

    3.10. Absolute and Relative Plotting Drawing commands are of two distinct types: absolute commands, in which the coordinates specified are the absolute user or graphics coordinates and relative commands, whose coordinates are relative to the coordinate position at which the previous graphics command terminated. 3.11.

  • Page 163: Command Syntax

    COMMAND SYNTAX An HP-GL and HP-GL/2 command can consist of up to four items: a mnemonic, a parameter field, a separator and a terminator. 4.1. Mnemonic The two-letter mnemonic is the name of the command and should help remind you of its function. 4.2.

  • Page 164: The Scaling Points P1 And P

    THE HP-GL GRAPHICS WINDOW 5.1. Units When you first enter graphics mode, the prevailing coordinate system has its origin in the bottom left hand corner of the graphics window and has x- and y-units of 1/1016". Using the SC command you can divide the axes into more convenient units.

  • Page 165: Printing An Image

    PREPARING TO PRINT GRAPHIC IMAGES 6.1. Setting Up the Graphics Window Before entering HP-GL/2 mode you will probably want to set the dimensions and position of the PCL picture frame and hence the graphics window. (Remember that when you enter HP-GL/2 mode they are initially the same).

    INTRODUCTION 1.1. About PJL Printer Job Language(PJL) provides job status control by sending the printer status information to the application. PJL can be a valuable tool for the single-user environment, but is a much more useful tool for the networking / sharing environment. Emulations ( BR-Script, PCL, IBM, EPSON etc...

    1.2. In Case of Using PJL with a Non-PJL Printer Our recent printer models support PJL, however, earlier models do not . If the PJL commands are sent to a non-PJL printer, the printer acts as follows; 1.2.1. PCL jobs For a PCL printer which does not support the PJL language, the PJL command is printed as ASCII text until initial PCL printer reset command (<ESC>E) is received.

    1.3. PJL Syntax and Format Syntax <For Example> @PJL ENTER LANGUAGE = emulation [<CR>]<LF> @PJL PJL Prefix ENTER Command name LANGUAGE Option name @PJL ENTER LANGUAGE Enter this portion verbatim The words in brackets [ ... ] indicates optional parameters. You should not type the brackets themselves in the command.

    1.4. Variables PJL can use alphanumeric variables, numeric variabless and strings. 1.4.1. Alphanumeric variables The first character must always be a character in the allowable range of letters and digits. Letters consists of the uppercase characters (ASCII 65-90) and lowercase characters (ASCII 97-122). Digits consists of the numbers 0-9 (ASCII 48-57).

    ENVIRONMENT COMMANDS 6.1. Introduction Our recent printers have many features which you are able to set using printer commands, through the printer control panel or by using the remote printer console program. A combination of PJL commands and printer emulation commands allows you to set printer features to the desired state. This chapter describes the setting of printer features known as printer environments, PJL commands you are able to use to set printer features to a desired state are as follows;...

    INTRODUCTION Some of these HL Series printers offer a complete emulation of the IBM Proprinter. In Proprinter XL mode you can drive the printer directly by incorporating control codes and escape sequences in your program, or alternatively, applications software (for example, your word-processing software) may send the necessary commands to the printer automatically.

  • Page 318: Character Set Selection

    EMULATION DETAILS The following points should be borne in mind when running the HL Series printers in IBM Proprinter XL mode. 3.1. Ignored Commands A few IBM Proprinter XL commands have reduced effect, or no effect at all. In some cases this is due to the physical nature of an HL Series printer.

  • Page 319: Notation Used In This Emulation Description

    NOTATION USED IN THIS EMULATION DESCRIPTION 4.1. Syntax The following conventions are used in this description of the Proprinter XL software commands. A letter, word or number in upright bold text is the literal character which and should be sent to the printer as a character code.
