Issues on UNIX PCL Code?


Hello Amarion,

Printer Command Language (or PCL or PCL commands) is a set of commands developed by HP as a protocol to be followed by printers while performing printing tasks.

PCL 1 was the first release in1984 followed by PCL 1+, PCL 2, PCL 3, PCL 3+, PCL 3GUI, PCL 4, PCL 5 and PCL 6 which is the latest in the league.

These versions are a result of the evolving printing technology.

A complete list of PCL 6 commands with complete description for use with UNIX platform is available here.

Hope you find this useful.
