       LEGEND: Ec = [Ctrl] [P] [Esc] in DOS EDIT
     The LaserJet will not understand HP-GL/2 commands
     without first toggling the printer into HP-GL/2
     mode. This can be done by using PCL commands.
     To send PCL commands to the printer you can create
     a text file using any text editor, and printing
     the file on the target printer. The following
     example will be done using the DOS text editor


     1.   At the DOS prompt type EDIT HPGL2.MOD and
          press ENTER. This will create a new file
          called HPGL2.MOD that you can save and use to
          enter HP-GL/2 mode whenever you want. After
          you press enter, the EDIT screen will appear.
     2.   The escape character in EDIT is done by
          pressing CTRL-P and then pressing ESC.  (The
          escape character is produced in numerous
          other ways for different types of editors.
          Please consult your user manual for
          appropriate keys to produce the escape
          character in your editor).
     3.   In EDIT the escape character is represented
          by a left arrow, in this example we will use
     EcE                           Resets the printer.

                                   with the pen at the
                                   default HPGL/2 pen
                                   position (The lower
                                   left corner of the

     4.   Send these commands to the printer by
          selecting FILE, PRINT, Full Document and OK
          if you have a mouse.
          Press ALT, F, P, then ENTER. You will now be
          in HP-GL/2 Mode.
     5.   To exit EDIT press ALT, F, then X. EDIT will
          ask you if you want to save the file now,
          press ENTER and it will save and exit EDIT.
     After you have entered this command sequence, the
     printer will accept HP-GL/2  code and execute it
     as if the printer was actually a plotter. The best
     way to use these commands, is to put them at the
     beginning of your HP-GL/2 file that you want to
     print on the LaserJet.
