I need to print some docs, for example :



I want to insert new page character between "DEF" and "XYZ" so that the printer starts a new page from "XYZ".

What character can do the job?

Historically, the ASCII character for new page (NP) was Control-L, or 012 (decimal). I have no idea if modern printers pay any attention to that sort of thing.
