  • Page 6 Anchor point The top left-hand corner of the PCL picture frame. You can position this on the page using a PCL command. Anisotropic scaling A form of image scaling using the SC command in HP-GL and HP-GL/2 mode in which the user units can be of different sizes.
  • Page 7 Effective window The area of the page on which HP-GL and HP-GL/2 output can appear. The effective window is determined by the overlap of the logical page, the PCL picture frame, the hard clip and the soft clip limits. Emulation mode A mode of operation in which the printer imitates the functions of a different model.
  • Page 8 Font descriptor A block of data that is downloaded to the printer as the first part of a downloaded font. The font descriptor describes the characteristics that are common to every character in the font, such as stroke weight, and contains other relevant information.
  • Page 9 The area of the physical page on which the cursor can be positioned in LaserJet mode. You can use PCL commands to specify the position of the logical page on the physical page. Also known as the PCL addressable area.

    In this case you will not need to use this manual, as your software package will perform the task of controlling the printer for you. Other packages allow you to embed software commands within your word-processed or spreadsheet documents.
  • Page 18: Font Development

    Font Development In LaserJet mode you can send your own character designs to an HL-Series laser 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.

    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 29: 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 ASCII code 8.
  • Page 30: Escape Sequences

    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 31 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.
  • Page 32: End-of-line Wrap

    3.3.3. Modified print environment The modified print environment is made up of all the current printer settings. If you call a macro or go into HP- GL/2 graphics language the modified print environment settings are saved. When the macro has been executed, or when you quit HP-GL/2, these saved settings are restored.

  • Page 49: Setting Line Spacing

    • Changing the line spacing setting does not affect the position of the top margin. • The factory default setting is 6 - that is, the printer will print six lines of text per inch. • Depending on your printer model, the number of lines per page can also be set from the printer’s control panel or remote printer console (see the User Guide).

    4.2.19. Perforation skip You can set the printer to flow text from one page to the next when it encounters a line feed (or half line feed) that would otherwise move the cursor position to below the bottom of the text area. When perforation skip is enabled the cursor is automatically moved to the top left hand corner of the text area on the next page and printing continues.
  • Page 51: Positioning The Cursor

    You can position the cursor anywhere on the logical page. In addition, the cursor position is automatically changed when text or graphics are printed. You can either position the cursor using absolute PCL coordinate values or position it relative to the current cursor position, using dots, decipoints or rows and columns as units.
  • Page 52: Horizontal Position

    • An unsigned number as the parameter signifies that the horizontal repositioning is absolute - the cursor will be repositioned the specified number of columns to the right of the left edge of the logical page, the PCL coordinate system’s y-axis.
  • Page 53: Positioning The Cursor Using Control Codes

    • An unsigned number as the parameter signifies that the horizontal repositioning is absolute - the cursor will be repositioned the specified number of decipoints to the right of the left edge of the logical page, the PCL coordinate system’s y-axis.
  • Page 54: Half Line Feed

    • Sending this command to the printer causes the page length, text length, top, left and right margins to be set to their user default values. Any previously transmitted data is printed out and the cursor is positioned at the top left hand corner of the text area on the next page.
  • Page 55 • All subsequent text is printed in the newly selected orientation. • The PCL coordinate system and margin settings are rotated through the specified angle. Hence the cursor coordinates will change. • HP-GL/2 graphics images cannot be rotated using this command.
  • Page 56: Using Fonts

    The laser printer does its best to print using the font you specified, but if amongst all its available fonts it does not have the exact one that you specified, it will compromise and give you what it regards as the closest available font.
  • Page 57: Bound Fonts

    5.1.6. Font sources Depending on your printer model, fonts available to the printer can be in one of three places, either in the printer’s ROM as supplied from the factory, on a cartridge/card, on the storage device, or in the printer’s RAM.

  • Page 59: Card/cartridge Fonts

    If the memory contains too many fonts the printer may run out of memory. Since downloaded fonts are stored in the printer’s RAM they are lost when the printer is switched off, and you must download them again before you can use them.
  • Page 60: Criteria For Font Selection

    5.1.15. Criteria for font selection The printer will try to match your stated font requirements as best it can with the fonts available to it in any of the three possible font locations. In most cases you will be specifying a font you know to be present in one of the locations and the resulting printed text will appear exactly as you envisaged.
  • Page 61: Stroke Weight

    Univers and Palatino. The printer has its own resident typefaces. When selecting a particular typeface ensure that it meets all your other specified criteria, otherwise the printer will substitute a font of a different typeface that can satisfy the other, higher priority criteria, such as style and stroke weight.
  • Page 62: Font Selection Commands

    • If an existing ID code is used for a user-defined symbol set, it is overwritten. • Up to 2047 downloadable user-defined symbol sets can be stored subject to the printer's memory capacity. • If a memory full error occurs while downloading the user-defined symbol set, the symbol set which is being downloaded becomes invalid.

    The printer’s built-in fonts are all portrait fonts. If you switch the orientation of the logical page to landscape and select a font, the printer will automatically create the landscape font in its memory. This saves you having to make the landscape font available by installing a card/cartridge or by downloading the font, but takes up printer memory and may cause the printer to run out of space when trying to compose complex page layouts.

    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.

    • The @PJL prefix which is placed at the beginning of a PJL job must follow immediately after the UEL command . • If the printer receives codes other than the PJL prefix, it enables the default printer language and prints the job.
  • Page 209: Enter Command

    • The specified emulation will be used immediately after the terminating <LF> of the ENTER command. • If the printer does not receive the ENTER command, it uses the default printer language which is set by the control panel or the printer language which is set by the SET PERSONALITY command.

    As the desired emulation is explicitly specified, this method is the most reliable. 4.6.2. Implicit switching If a default printer language is configured, and the PJL ENTER command is not described on a PJL line, the printer uses the default printer emulation. This may not always select your desired emulation.

    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.
  • Page 214: Pjl Reset Conditions

    Remember the following points when you use PJL to set the printer to a desired state. 1. The current feature settings are the same as the control panel values ( or values in the remote printer console program) when beginning a PJL job.
  • Page 215: Pjl Environment Variables

    Note: 1. Use PJL commands only when no printer language commands are available for a desired feature. 2. When setting printer features with PJL, use the SET and RESET commands when you want to affect the current PJL job only.

  • Page 300: 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 301: Emulation Details

    Numerical parameter data, too, is sent to the printer as if it were a character code to be printed. For example, to set the left and right margin settings to be at 10 and 70 columns across the page the required escape sequence is Esc X 10 70. In BASIC this would be: LPRINT CHR$(27);...
  • Page 302: Notation Used In This Emulation Description

    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. A letter or word in italics is a variable and you must substitute the appropriate value or values when using the command.
  • Page 303: Commands

    COMMANDS 5.1. Basic Printer Operation The most common printer operations are described in this section. Most are invoked using control codes. For the sake of completeness the instructions which HL Series printers ignore are included. Null NUL (ASCII 0) is ignored.
  • Page 304 The new emulation mode default settings come into effect, except when the mode is set to ‘FD’. • If you set the mode to ‘FD’ to reset the printer to its factory default settings, LaserJet mode (the factory default emulation mode) is selected and the LaserJet factory default environment is restored.
