USING EDGE RECTANGLE ABSOLUTE ( EA ) TO DRAW RECTANGLES The Edge Rectangle Absolute ( EA ) command defines and outlines a rectangle using absolute coordinates using the current pen location and a point you specify as the two opposite corners of a rectangle. For more information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. LEGEND: Ec = [Ctrl] [P] [Esc] in DOS EDIT. EcE Resets the printer. Ec%0B Enters HP-GL/2 mode. IN; Initializes HP-GL/2 mode. SP1; Selects pen number 1, (black). Even though there is no physical pen, the SP command must be used to enable printing. SC0,150,0,150,1; Sets up user scaling, with P1 being (0,0) user- units, (as opposed to plotter units), and P2 being (150,150) user- units. (The 1 on the end specifies isotropic scaling, or that the units on the X and Y axis are the same size). PA75,105;EA115,130 Selects absolute plotting mode and moves the pen to (75,105). Using the EA command will outline the shape of a rectangle that begins at (75,105) and has an upper right corner of (115,130) user-units. PA95,105;PD95,95; Draws a line form (95,105) to (95,95). PD65,95,65,90; Draws a line from the current pen location (95,95) to (65,95), and another line from there to (65,90). PU45,90;EA85,65; Lifts the pen and moves to (45,90), then draws the outline of a rectangle with an upper left corner of (45,90) and a lower right corner of (85,65). PU95,95;PD125,95,125,90; Lifts the pen and moves to (95,95), lowers the pen and draws a line to (125,95), then to (125,90). PU145,90;EA105,65; Lifts the pen and moves it to (145,90). Draws the outline of a rectangle, with the upper right corner at (145,90) and the lower left corner at (105,65). Ec%0A Enters the PCL mode. EcE Sends a reset to end the job and eject the page.
