USING THE PEN WIDTH COMMAND This command specifies a new width for the logical pen. The pen width can be specified as a fixed value or a relative value based on the distance between P1 and P2. The units for measurement in the PW command are selected with the WU command (the default is metric). For more information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. The syntax for the PW command is as follows: PW width,[pen]; or PW; 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.
