PRINT CHARACTERS IN PC8 SYMBOL SET


DEFINITION
     
     Symbol sets are unique groupings of characters
     (alphabetic, numeric, punctuation and special symbols)
     designed to meet the requirements of specific languages
     and occupations.
     
     This program prints the entire PC-8 symbol set
     including the normally transparent symbols.  For more
     information concerning symbol sets refer to your
     printer user's manual or the PCL5 Printer Language
     Technical Reference Manual.
     
          Note:  This example is written using
                 GWBASIC as it utilizes specific
                 commands only available through
                 a programming language.  Each
                 program language has a different
                 set of commands to perform a
                 similar function.  This cannot
                 be done in EDIT due to the
                 for/next loop command.
