CHANGING THE ANCHOR CORNER The AC command positions the starting point of any fill pattern. By using this command you ensure that the selected fill pattern is positioned as expected within the figure. 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. PA3000,3000; Specifies absolute plotting and moves to location (3000,3000). FT3,400,45;RR1000,1000; ER1000,1000; Specifies a fill type of number 3 (parallel lines), with each line 400 plotter units (plu) apart and set at a 45 degree angle. RR fills a rectangle using the current pen location as the lower left corner, and a point 1000 plu to the right and 1000 plu up as the upper right corner. The ER edges the same rectangle just filled. PR1000,0;FT4,400,45;RR1000, 1000;ER1000,1000; Moves 1000 plu to the right, andselects fill type 4 (cross-hatch); then draws a rectangle the same size as the first one, and fills it with the cross-hatch pattern just specified, then edges it with the ER command. PR1000,0;FT3,400,45; RR1000,1000;ER1000,1000; Moves to the right another 1000 plu, and creates another rectangle of the same size, then fills this one with the number 3 fill pattern again. Then edges the rectangle just specified. PA3000,1500;AC3000,1500; RR1000,1000;ER1000,1000; Moves the pen to absolute position (3000,1500), and moves the anchor corner to location (3000,1500). Fills a rectangle with the fill pattern selected (number 3 from the command above), and edges it. PA4000,1500;AC4000,1500; FT4,400,45;RR1000,1000, ER1000,1000; Moves to location (4000,1500) andspecifies the location as the anchor corner. Selects fill type number 4 again, then fills, and edges a rectangle. PA5000,1500;AC5000,1500; FT3,400,45;RR1000,1000; ER1000,1000; Moves to absolute location (5000,1500)and specifies that location as the anchor corner, then selects fill type 3 again, and fills and edges another rectangle.
