     The Character Plot ( CP ) command specifies the number
     of spaces and lines from the current pen location that
     characters will be plotted. For more information see
     the PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual.
     The syntax for this command is as follows:
     CP spaces,lines; or CP;

     Spaces                        Specifies the number of
                                   spaces the pen moves
                                   relative to the current
                                   pen location.  The space
                                   width is uniquely defined
                                   for each font.
     Lines                         Specifies the number of
                                   lines the pen moves
                                   relative to the current
                                   pen location. The Line
                                   Feed distance is uniquely
                                   defined for each font.

                                   the SP command must be

                                   Line Feed, and is
                                   produced in DOS EDIT by
