The Question is:
MY PROBLEM IS WE HAVE 2 APPLICATION RUNNING ON A CLUSTER. THE PROBLEM IS AROUND
TO A4 PAPER FROM LA210 ,LA310 PRINTERS
ONE OF THE APPLICATION PRINTS 80 CHARACTERS WIDE AND THE OTHER 132 CHARACTERS
WHICH WHILE PRINTING ON A4 IT WRAPS AROUND.
IS THERE ANY WAY WE CAN SET UP A DEVICE CONTROL
LIBRARY WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO DO THIS.
The Answer is :
It would initially appear that the printer itself, the serial line,
the print form, or the application is using a different setting for
the printer. (Unfortunately, without rather more information on the
configuration, no specific answer is possible.)
That said, topics (4222), (5995) and (6233) will also be of interest.
Use the SHOW TERMINAL or SHOW PRINTER command to check the communications
configuration and settings, and SHOW QUEUE and the commands in the
above-referenced topics to check the print queue and the print queue
forms. Check the printer configuration itself -- as a very simple test
(and assuming compatible connections), swap the two printers and see if
the page configuration stays with the communications line or if it moves
with the printer.
Here is an example device control sequence which sets various ANSI PPL
printers to 6.7 point size, 16 cpi, 6 lines per inch.
This particular sequence results in 132*62 portrait printing. When
setting up the printer, the page length is set (only) via the print
form, and you will likely want to use /NOFEED.
