        It may be that the HP thinks the page is larger than it is. I've 
     found that if I include the command to disable the perforation skip, 
     ^E&l/0L or hex 1B 26 6C 30 4C, it helps.  Disabling the perf skip 
     causes the HP to wait for an explicit form feed character rather than 
     starting a new page when the printing is outside the official page 
     size.

Hello all,
I have a very nice AS400 RPG job that outputs its PRTF wonderfully under 
normal circumatances.  I am now trying to use PCL (Hewlett Packard Laser 
Jet 4 supplied character strings to embed in the output specs) these 
embedded strings allow your printout to be printed landscape and at 6 
LPI.  Every time my  printout encounters one of these strings it adds a 
blank page between my pages.  The start string I am using is ^E&l1o6D 
(this is a string to cause the printout to landscape @ 6LPI then at end 
of each page I send the reset PCL string ^E.  It is landscaping 
beautifully except thes skipped pages between printed pages, I even 
tried to use the just the PCL strings themselves to make my PRTF skip to 
next page.. instead of a SKIPB keyword.  Any suggestions are very much 
appreciated.
