What's this P1 in my eyeglass prescription?

I am the newest member of the eyeglass-wearing community (or I will be when they get here in 5-7 days) and I have a question about my prescription.

Thanks to this Wikipedia article
I can read my prescription, except for one detail. Here's my prescription, and the part I don't understand is bolded:
-.50 x 115
OS +.25 -.75 x 040
I'm not sure that it is a P1 or PL - which is it and what does it mean? As I understand it from the Wiki article, that is the spherical for my right eye (though my prescription doesn't have that nice chart the one in the article does.)
