PCL 5 Technical Reference Manual Corrections

This section describes updates to the PCL 5 Printer Language
Technical Reference Manual
(5961-0509). Because this manual will
not be updated, any changes to it are documented in this guide.
Some errors have been identified in the PCL 5 Printer Language
Technical Reference Manual
since its printing. Those errors are
identified and corrections are provided on this page.

Chapter 4 PCL Job Control Commands

Unit of Measure Command
In Figure 4-6 on page 4-18, the two escape sequences at the top
should read “(

?

&u100D) and (

?

&u200D)” instead of “(

?

&u100B)

and (

?

&u200B).”

Chapter 8 PCL Font Selection

Transparent Print Data Command
The last sentence in the note at the bottom of page 8-33 should read
“Refer to the PCL 5 Comparison Guide, Appendix A, for character
codes for the various symbol sets.” instead of “Refer to Appendix A
for character codes for the various symbol sets.”

Chapter 13 The PCL Print Model

User-Defined Pattern Command
In Figure 13-10 on page 13-19, byte zero should read Format (20)
instead of Format (0)

On page 13-21, Format (Byte 0) should read “0” for a 300 DPI
user-defined pattern header and “20” for a resolution-specified
user-defined pattern header.
