PCLReader Program

PCLReader is a commercial quality trialware PCL Viewer and Converter of PCL3 thru PCL6/XL. PCLReader was developed for non-commercial end-users with legacy applications that can only generate PCL output and generic Windows application users with very limited needs to print or convert PCL to PDF output file format.

PCLReader provides non-commercial end-users the ability to view, extract/normalize and print HP PCL print files. PCLReader also converts PCL files into PDF, PDF/A, TIF, BMP, JPG, PCX, PNG, PWG, PCLm, XPS and ASCII Text.

Program Features

Print PCL to any Windows Printer: This allows users to print PCL on any non_PCL printer, like inkjet, GDI or even PCL XL-only printers.

Convert PCL to PDF: Once in PDF format, you can send converted files as email attachments, post on the web or add to a document archival system for later retrieval. PCLReader also eliminates the need to purchase a PDF driver, which do not work on PCL files anyway.

PCL Form Converter: PCLReader can convert PCL forms into PDF, PDF/A, TIF, XPS, PNG and other file formats so they can be used as overlays in custom applications.

Extract ASCII Text from a PCL: PCLReader can extract text objects found in PCL file and convert them into PageTech's proprietary .TNX format. Then, with TNXDumpG.exe (included) you can format the extracted text into any of 9 different text reporting formats for data migration.

PWG and PCLm Raster Format Support: PCLReader can now convert PCL into PWG and PCLm raster format for Mobile Devices and the Cloud printing that will required inclusion of Job Ticketing metadata.

Job Ticketing: Convert PCL into PCLm and PWG formats while inserting required job ticketing metadata derived from PCL and PJL escape codes (Duplexing, tray commands, color, etc.). Includes the ability to view and edit job ticketing metadata found in these new cloud/mobile formats.

View / Email Interface: After converting files a prompt is provided to either view the output file directly or email the converted file.

PCL Optimizer: PCLReader can edit PCL printstreams for optimal viewing and faster printing.

Eliminate Cost and Requirements to "Stamp" PCL: With PCLReader, there is no need to "stamp" PCL with expensive, proprietary tools just so they can be viewed or converted by yourself or others.

Save Trees: With PCLReader, you can preview print files to make sure they look right before you print them. And, you can re-print only selected pages - instead of the whole file.
