VARYING THE CHORD ANGLE The chord angle refers to the angle used to draw an arc in a curve. The smaller the chord angle the smoother the curve. The default is a chord angle of 5 degrees. 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 one (black). Even though there is no physical pen, the SP command must be used to enable printing. PA2000,0; Specifies (2000,0) as the starting point, to plot absolute. PD;AA0,0,45,25; With the pen down, draws a 45 degree arc (positive angle) with center coordinates of (0,0) and a chord angle of 25 degrees. PU1050,1060; Lifts the pen and moves to coordinates (1050,1060) Plotter Units (PLU). PD;AA0,0,-45,10; With the pen down, draws a 45 degree arc (negative angle) using the same center point as the first arc, but with a 10 degree chord angle. PU;1000,0; Lifts the pen and moves to coordinates (1000,0), PLU. PD;AA0,0,45; With the pen down, draws another 45 degree arc (positive angle) with the same center point, but with the default chord angle of 5 degrees. Ec%0A Enters PCL mode.
