     The Symbol Mode ( SM ) command, draws the specified
     symbol at each X, Y coordinate point using the PA , PD
     , PE , PR , and PU commands. The SM command includes an
     automatic pen down; after the symbol is drawn the pen
     position and line attributes are restored. For more
     information see the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical
     Reference Manual. The syntax for this command is as
     SM character; or SM;
     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.
     1230,400,1560;                Enters the symbol mode,
                                   using the asterisk (*) as
                                   the symbol; moves to
                                   absolute location
                                   (200,1000), sets the pen
                                   down, and draws first to
                                   (200,1230), then to
                                   (400,1560). The SM
                                   command will cause an
                                   asterisk to be printed at
                                   each X, Y coordinate of
                                   this command.
          NOTE:  To disable the SM command, so it
                 will not print an asterisk at
                 each X, Y coordinate specified,
                 send the command "SM;". By
                 sending this command with no
                 parameters, the symbol mode is
     1800,2000;PU;                 Places the pen down and
                                   draws from the current
                                   pen position (400,1560)
                                   to (700,1670), to
                                   (1300,1600), and to
                                   (1800,2000). The PU then
                                   lifts the pen.
     1300,850;                     Enters the symbol mode
                                   again with a new symbol
                                   of "3" as the current
                                   symbol; prints a "3" at
                                   the following locations:
                                   (700,500), (900,450), and
     1350;PU;SM;                   With the pen still up and
                                   "3" still the current
                                   symbol, this prints a "3"
                                   at  locations (1750,1300)
                                   and (2500,1350); lifts
                                   the pen, and exits the
                                   symbol mode.
     PA4400,1890;SMZ;              Moves to (3300,1100),
                                   sets the pen down, and
                                   enters symbol mode with
                                   "Y" as the symbol; draws
                                   a line to (4400,1890),
                                   and prints a "Y"; re-
                                   enters the symbol mode
                                   with the new symbol "Z".
     PA3300,1100;PU;               Draws a line to
                                   (4600,1590) and prints a
                                   "Z". Specifies "X" as the
                                   next symbol, and moves to
                                   (3300,1100); prints an
                                   "X", and lifts the pen.
     SMA;PA4000,400;CI400;         Specifies "A" as the new
                                   symbol and moves to
                                   (4000,400); draws a
                                   circle with a radius of
                                   400 plotter units (plu)
                                   and prints an "A: in the
     SM*;PA2600,700;EA1500,200;    Specifies "*" as the new
                                   symbol and moves to
                                   (2600,700); edges a
                                   rectangle with the EA
                                   command, and prints an
                                   asterisk, "*" at the
                                   starting point.
