Here's a Bourne Shell Command file I wrote to print Base SAS output in Landscape format using 14 chars./inch, 8 char. left margin and 13 line top margin on an HP Laserjet IV. The PCL scripts can be incorporated in a DMS print form also. I work on a Sun Sparcstation 20 Model 50 using SunOS 4.1.3. I use the the following SAS option for landscape printing:

options ls=128 ps=42;

-- lprint (UNIX Command file) --

cat $pcl/land.pcl $1 $pcl/reset.pcl | lp

Note: $pcl - UNIX environment variable containing the location of the sytemwide Printer Control Language directory.

$1 - First command line argument. Contains the name of the text file to print.

-- land.pcl --

^[&l1O ^[(s14H ^[&a8L ^[&a13E

-- reset.pcl
