C PAUSE: Temporarily pauses data output. When data output is paused, the WAIT indicator will light. To resume data output, press PAUSE again. Note that the PAUSE button can also be used to initiate two test routines as described in Section 4.1. 
® TOF (Top-of-Form): Sends a ^L (Form Feed) if the buffer is empty or the Pause mode is active. 
® WAIT: Lights when data output is paused 
@ MEM Indicator: Indicates current memory usage. 
  Memory Empty: Remains off. 
  10% Full: Blinks once and then pauses. 
  20% Full: Blinks twice and then pauses. 
  30% to 90% Full: Blinks once for each 10% of memory used, and then pauses. 
  Memory Full: Remains Lit. 
 
  RDY: Lights when printer(s) are connected and online. Blinks on and off if either printer is busy or offline.
