PCL5 Horizontal Cursor Positioning (Units) Command

PCL5 Horizontal Cursor Positioning (Units) Command

PCL5 Horizontal Cursor Positioning (Units) Command

Hello, everybody !
I have the case of PCL5 Horizontal Cursor Positioning (Units) Command. As you know this command moves the cursor to a new position along the horizontal axis.
The sintax is EC p # X. (PCL5 Tech. Ref)
A value field (#) with a plus sign (+) indicates the new
position is to the right of and relative to the current
cursor position; a minus sign(-)indicates the new
position is to the left of and relative to the current
cursor position. No sign indicates an absolute distance
which is referenced from the left edge of the logical page.

Ok, that's wonderful but I disassembled a prn file where I have a double sign preceding the value.
For instance: EC* p+-200X or EC p--500X.

What is the meaning of this ? (I'm using JetAsm to assemble/disassemble the asm/prn files and the PrnPrint to print directly the prn file.
The printer is a HP LaserJet 4050).

Thank you guys, in advance.

In which case, I have no idea why you should observe the reported symptoms.
