PCLWorks Program is the ideal solution for viewing, debugging and converting today's complex PCL3 thru PCL6/XL print streams. Quickly and easily convert PCL to JBIG2 compressed raster or vector/text PDF and PDF/A files, as well as PCL to BMP, EMF, JPG PCX, PMF, PNG, PWG, PCLm, TIF, WMF, and XPS formats. PCLWorks is the most powerful converter of PCL3 thru PCL6/XL on the market today - including HPGL/2.
PCLWorks not only converts PCL, it allows end-users to view, edit, disassemble, debug, extract text and print PCL to any Windows printer. PageTech was the first company to convert PCL to PDF/A format and we just added PCL to PWG (Printer Working Group) and HP's PCLm mobile conversion formats in this release.
