Language Pcl LJ1824


     HP-GL/2 is a vector graphics language that essentially
     turns your printer into a plotter. Vector graphics uses
     less memory than raster graphics, when being stored, as
     well as having a more efficient Input/Output transfer
     of large images when printing, (it will print faster).
     When printing  in HP-GL/2, the printer will define
     points "a" and "b" then draw a line between them, in
     raster the printer defines every point between point
     "a" and point "b".


     HP-GL/2 was added to the PCL language in PCL Level 5,
     for LaserJet III family printers and is supported in
     LaserJet 4 family printers with PCL Level 5 Enhanced.
     To print in HP-GL/2 you are required to leave the PCL
     environment and enter the HP-GL/2 environment.
     Switching into and out of HP-GL/2 requires only a few
     commands, and cannot be done through the front menu
     panel. Some software applications may easily switch
     between the two modes as needed without affecting


     The best way to learn HP-GL/2 is to read the
     "Introduction to HP-GL/2 Graphics" in the PCL 5 Printer
     Language Technical Reference Manual for an overview of
     HP-GL/2. Then find the specific commands you need in
     subsequent chapters. Reading through the examples, then
     trying to print them using a text editor or programming
     language is the best way to learn HP-GL/2.
