PCL output produces error on HP printer - Line too long





------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED]  2001-12-26 16:30 -------
This is a new one by me. What is the model of the printer?

I have just searched through the "HP PCL 5 Printer Language Technical Reference 
Manual" and I could not find any reference to a line length limit. I also 
searched the HP website for this error and could not find any references 
related to laserjets. In PCL, line terminators (CR and/or LF) should only be 
used for cursor positioning. They do not function as command delimiters. True, 
as long as they do not interupt a PCL command sequence it should not be a 
problem, since the PCLRenderer currently uses explicit positioning for each 
word. But it should not be necessary. Also each page should end with a Form 
Feed character, which typically would also serve as a line terminator. Unless 
each page is real complex, I would expect a modern printer to have adequate 
memory to hold an entire page in memory without difficulty. Is there anything 
unusual about what is being printed that is encountering this error (page 
filled with really tiny text or lots of graphic stuff, etc)?

FWIW, we have printed many multi-megabyte PCL files produced by FOP without any 
problems (to a variety of printers). One of our customers is currently 
generating PCL files from FOP that are greater than 2 GB in size.
