mode

The command is the HP-GL/2 version of the PCL Pixel Placement
command. Whatever mode is selected, using the HP-GL/2 PP
command also applies to PCL operation. Likewise the PCL Pixel
Placement command also affects HP-GL/2 pixel placement.

Note

Microsoft Windows fills polygons based on grid centered method.

This command determines how pixels will be placed for both HP-GL/2
and PCL operation.

The PP command is not defaulted by an IN command.
