Usage notes

The NEW PAGE command directs Model 204 to start a new output page. The remainder of the current page is skipped, and a system-generated header is displayed at the top of the new page. The header has the format:

date time pagenumber

Where:

date The Julian date, consisting of the year, followed by the month and day of the year.
time The value is in hours, minutes, and seconds, based on a 24-hour clock.
pagenumber The page number, which is incremented automatically as new pages are produced.

The page header, which is known as header 0, is not printed if the setting of the HDRCTL (header control) user parameter includes the 1 option, or if the OUTLPP (lines per page) parameter is set to zero. However, if OUTLPP is set to -1, page counting is suppressed, but headers and trailers still are displayed.
