HP printer font
Hi all,

Attached is a printer font for HP printer such as HP-19c

These are the list of characters it has...

Same Characters
0-9
A-Z
%
*
+
-
.
/
<
>
=
?
e
i
Space

Special Characters
b - XBar
d - Down arrow
l - <=
m - Superscript -1
n - Not equal to
q - Superscript squared
r - Right arrow
s - Square root
u - Up arrow
v - Divide
w - Swap arrows
x - multiply
z - Sigma

I cannot work out why there is such a big spacing between lines, so I will have to try and find out.

cheers

Tony

RE: HP printer font
Thanks! I just used it in documentation of a program. I makes the printer output documented stand out.

Great! If you add a lowercase a, b, c and d it would also match the HP97. ;-)

But, without having examined the metrics, it looks like this not a fixed width font. For instance, take a look at the spaces.
Is this intended? I think all characters of such a printer font should have the same width.

The spacing seems ok, I forgot about the [space] character.

Added a b c d e

The problem really seems to be the space character. I loaded a formatted program listing into Word and set the font to HPprinter. After replacing the spaces with another character (e.g. the dot) everything aligns nicely. Compared to the original printout the characters only could be a bit taller, I think. But that's a minor issue.

Great, thank you. Now I downloaded the font file at http://www.teenix.org/HPprinter.ttf but I still get the same characters: f and g yield a small non-serif f and g, there is no a...d and the space has a different width. "d" is the down-arrow and "b" gives x-bar. So it seems to be the old version of the font file although the file sizes are different.

?!?

Hi Dieter,

Sorry, I don't know what happened. I uploaded again this morning and even though I didn't change anything, the file sizes were different.

It was probably me. I was driving the fuel tanker all day yesterday and some exhaust fumes leak into the cabin so by the end of the day things get a bit weird. Hopefully the boss fixes it soon.

I downloaded and installed it just now and seems ok.


cheers

Thank you, it seems to work fine now.

So if you are driving the fuel tanker, who is flying the plane?

Two pilots on duty usually. I drive the tanker to and from the remote job areas and fly once out there(?).

cheers
