# CharSize value PCL 6

## CharSize value PCL 6

(OP)
Hello,

How I can convert CharSize value to original value?

Currently I have CharSize = 5,53552857091405E-315 for 12pt font
and CharSize = 5,6022294884157E-315 for 36 pt font (print job from MS Word)

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

The CharSize attribute value should be a positive number indicating the required character size (in the current UnitsPerMeasure units).

The value is usually provided using a real32 datatype, although I guess it could also be provided using the uint16 datatype.

To convert between the CharSize value and the equivalent size in PCL points (72 per inch), the current Measure and UnitsPerMeasure values must be taken into account.

For example:

current Measure value = eInch
current UnitsPerMeasure value = 600
CharSize value = 75
Point size = (75 * 72) / 600
= 9

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

(OP)
Thank you, currently I have:

UnitsPerMeasure = 600
Measure = eInch
CharSize = 5,53552857091405E-315 (very small Real32 value)

Point size = very small value :(

Also I have PageScale = 5,26354424712089E-315

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

Are you sure that you are interpreting the real32 datatype values correctly?

Can you post the byte sequences (in hexadecimal) which you think correspond to the SetPageScale and SetFont operators, together with their preceding attribute lists.

Indicate whether your print stream is using Big or Little-Endian values.

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

My interpretation of your print stream is as follows; note that I had to change round the 'endian-ness' of most of your array-length values to suit 'little-Endian':

*** End of analysis ***

Note that my interpretation of your PageScale value is (1.000, 1.000) and of your CharSize value it is 83.000.

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

(OP)

I found my error with conversion.

Also may be you know, this file contain several commands BoundingBox, RectanglePath and PaintPath, but on my printed page (and with PCL viewers) I see only text data, not any visible rectangle, why?

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

(OP)
Also about CharSize, I need make any other conversions to metric system if I have Measure = eInch?

### RE: CharSize value PCL 6

I suspect that you don't see any rectangles, because the Pen and Brush are set to inappropriate values.

For example (using the displacements shown in my analysis), the PaintPath operator at displacement 174 is preceded by a RectanglePath operator (@ 173), and these are both preceded by operators to set the current Brush and Pen:

@ 155: SetBrushSource operator sets RGBColor (255,255,255), which is White.
@ 160: SetPenSource operator sets pen to NullPen.

A later SetBrushSource operator (@ 204) sets RGBColor to (0,0,0), which is Black.
This is used by subsequent Text operators (note that Text uses the brush, but not the pen).

As for CharSize: if you use eInch as the unit of measure, then you can do a manual conversion in any analysis.
Or you could set the unit of measure to eMillimeter (value=1), or eTenthsOfAMillimeter (value=2), although you'd obviously have to change all of your other value fields appropriately.
