HEADER Alternate Syntax for Device Specification
TEXT
separating punctuation to delimit the pieces. These codes specify:
   B  Boldface
   L  Page length
   M  Margin
   P  Pitch
   Q  Quality (can be Q, Q1, or Q2)
For example, you could specify:
An alternate syntax is available for specifying right margin and page
   DEVICE: LASER;P-LASER-LANDSCAPE;/M132L100P16BQ2
In this example, the margin is set to 132 (M132), the page length to 100
lines (L100), the pitch to 16 (P16), the intensity to bold typeface (B),
and the quality set to letter quality (Q2). An absence of the B would
indicate normal intensity. The quality settings are Q, Q1, and Q2.
Your IRM needs to confirm that the appropriate code to set the specified
printer attributes is set up for the device that you are using. Then, when
the Device Handler closes the device, IRM needs to be sure that
length when responding to the device prompt. Using the alternate format,
appropriate reset code is in the Close Execute field so that the
characteristics do not stay in effect. If, for example, someone requests a
small pitch, subsequent reports will also use the small pitch unless reset
in the close execute statement for that device (or altered by the open
execute statement of the next device called).
you can specify pitch, intensity, and quality. The success of specifying
these additional attributes, however, depends on whether the corresponding
fields have been defined by IRM at your site.
The syntax requires the use of a slash (/) after the last semicolon. You
can then use the letters B, L, M, P, and Q in any order, without
