USING THE LINE ATTRIBUTE COMMAND The Line Attributes command specifies how line ends and line joins are physically shaped. This command can only be used when drawing lines that are thicker than 0.35 mm. The following example draws an electrical ground symbol using the ( LA ) command. For more information see the PCL 5 Technical Reference Manual. The syntax for this command is as follows: LA kind,value,[kind,value,[kind,value]]; or LA; 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. PA4000,3000; Specifies absolute plotting and moves to location (4000,3000). PW2;LA1,3;PD3500,2500, 4000,2000; Sets the pen width to 2 mm; specifies a triangular line end, places the pen down and draws a line from the current pen location to (3500,2500), to (4000,2000). PU3500,2500;LA2,2,3,20; PD3000,2500,3000,2300; Lifts the pen and moves to (3500,2500);sets the line join to mitered/beveled and the miter limit to 20. Sets the pen down and draws a line to (3000,2500), then to (3000,2300). PU2500,2300;LA1,4;PD35002300; Lifts the pen and moves it to (2500,2300); specifies round line ends and draws a line to (3500,2300). PU2700,2100;PD3300,2100; Lifts the pen and moves to (2700,2100); sets the pen down and draws a line to (3300,2100). PU2900,1900;PD3100,1900; Lifts the pen and moves to (2900,1900); sets the pen down and draws a line to (3100,1900). Ec%0A Enters PCL mode. EcE Sends a reset to end the job and eject the page. NOTE: Due to space limitations some of the above lines of code appear on more than one line. When entering them in DOS EDIT they should be placed on one line.
