Symbolic Names

A symbolic name is a character string used as an identifier. Symbolic names have the following characteristics:

  • The first character must be an uppercase or lowercase letter.

  • After the first character, the name can consist of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and the underscore character ( _ ).

  • Names are case sensitive.

  • The number of characters in a name is unlimited.

The GPD language predefines a large number of symbolic names. Predefined names exist for printer attributes, command names, standard features, standard options, and standard variables.

You can define symbolic names for customized features, customized options, and macros.
