In some instances it may become necessary or advantageous to create an AUTOEXEC.ZPL file. It functions in much the same way as the autoexec.bat file in MS-DOS. It can be used for setting up various parameters at the time the printer is powered up. When the printer is powered on, it checks its non-volatile memory locations for the stored format called AUTOEXEC.ZPL. If found, the contents of the file are automatically executed as a stored format.
