USING THE CHARACTER FILL MODE COMMAND The Character Fill Mode ( CF ) command specifies the way scalable fonts are filled and edged. Bitmapped and Stick fonts cannot be edged and can be filled only with raster fill, shading, or PCL cross-hatch patterns. For more information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. The syntax for this command is as follows: CF fill mode,[edge pen]; PARAMETERS: Fill Mode Specifies how the printer renders filled characters. Edge Pen For characters that are to be edged, this parameter indicates the pen that is used to edge the character (black or white, edged or not edged). PROGRAM: 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. SD1,21,2,1,4,140,5,0,6,3,7, 4148;SS; Specifies a 140 point Universe Bold font with the Standard Font Definition ( SD ) command; selects it for printing with the Select Standard font ( SS ) command. PA1000,3000;DT*; Specifies absolute plotting and moves to (1000,3000); sets the Data Terminator ( DT ) to be an asterisk (The mode of the Data Terminator is not set so it defaults to a 1, which means it will not print). FT3,50,45; Specifies a hatching fill type with 50 plotter units (plu) between each line, and the lines set at a 45 degree angle. CF1,1;LBA*; Select character fill mode 1 (edge and edge with pen number 1 (black); plots the letter "A." PR127,0; Moves the pen to a position 127 plu to the right. PW.1;CF3,1;LBB*; Sets the pen width to .1 mm; selects character fill mode 3 (fill and edge) and edge with pen number 1 (black); prints the letter "B." PW.5;LBC*; Sets the pen width to .5 mm to change the thickness of the fill lines; prints the letter "C." Ec%0A Enters PCL mode. EcE Sends a reset to end the job and eject the page.
