THE IW COMMAND In HP-GL/2 you can create a window where your image will print. If your HP-GL/2 commands move the pen outside of that window, that part of the image that is outside will not print. The IW command or Input Window command will let you define this window where the image will print. The IW command creates a "soft-clip" window, where HP-GL/2 commands will not print.
