What is the LRECL for printer files in COBOL

LRECL for printer file is generally 133 record length in JCL but I have
seen that some COBOL programs use 132 LRECL but some would use record
length of 133, can someone point out what could be the rational behind this?

LRECL for Printer file

While 132/133 and 120/121 are probably the most common, a COBOL program can use many different report lrecls depending on requirements.

The difference between 132/133 is the carriage control character that controls spacing.
