PRINT CHARACTERS IN PC8 SYMBOL SET DEFINITION Symbol sets are unique groupings of characters (alphabetic, numeric, punctuation and special symbols) designed to meet the requirements of specific languages and occupations. This program prints the entire PC-8 symbol set including the normally transparent symbols. For more information concerning symbol sets refer to your printer user's manual or the PCL5 Printer Language Technical Reference Manual. Note: This example is written using GWBASIC as it utilizes specific commands only available through a programming language. Each program language has a different set of commands to perform a similar function. This cannot be done in EDIT due to the for/next loop command.
