HPGL RO Command not working

I have a small test file that is supposed to print some text in PCL, then a rectangle in HPGL. Everything is rotated 90 degrees to print in the landscape direction. The box does not print, and it looks to me like the HPGL RO90 command does not work at all. I'd like a working test file showing this command, or a workaround?

Are you sure that your printer can print both PCL and HPGL on the same page?  I have not seen this done before - but most of my experience is with CAD programs that only send hpgl to the plotter so it may be possible.

Can you print just the hpgl part with out the PCL?

I will do a little digging in my hpgl commands refs and post a real simple plot file with and with out the rotate command.

All of my hpgl capable equip is at work, so this will have to wait a day or so.
