Since 1993 Page Technology Marketing, Inc. (PageTech) has specialized in HP PCL® print stream transformation, typeface conversion utilities and other related PCL and imaging technologies. Our PCLTool SDK is designed for developers who need to convert, manipulate and transform complex PCL. We also offer a GUI-only version of our SDK named PCLWorks for customers looking for something powerful, but easy to use.
Option I of the PCLTool SDK has a industry exclusive dynamic link library (DLL) that converts PCL text and vector files into bitmap formats (in-memory TIFF Gp4, in-memory DIB, PCX, DCX, BMP, JPG, PNG, XPS, PDF and TIF); or into vector formats (in-memory GDI, PDF, PDF/A, WMF and EMF) with metrically matching TrueType fonts for those fonts in the PCL print file.
The various PCLTool SDK options are designed to fit into existing applications quickly and seamlessly. Converting PCL directly into PDF format saves time and money compared to printing, scanning and OCR reading each page of text. Our powerful new search feature can find a specific invoice in a 70,000-page print stream and extract it for viewing and/or printing.
Turns laser printer output files into portable documents without the need for proprietary drivers, authoring kits, viewers, etc.
Creates smallest PDF file size, with searchable text using our exclusive JBIG2 raster compression option. Converts download bitmap fonts into scalable TrueTypes for embedding into PDFs when converting to vector PDFs.
Is indispensable in the development of Windows electronic form applications that use HP PCL form overlays or as a tool for developers of HP PCL3GUI, PCL3, PCL4, PCL5, PCL5e, PCL5c, PCL XL, and PCL XL JetReady applications.
Allows you to view print only files in their native, printer-ready format; saves time and paper.
Provides a valuable trouble shooting tool for technical support personnel responsible for solving HPPCL3GUI, PCL3, PCL4, PCL5, PCL5e, PCL5c, HPGL/2, PCLXL and PCLXL JetReady printer problems.
DLLs with Sample Program: All high/low level function calls are exercised in the sample program.
WINFMOVE: Converts the TrueType typefaces that come with Windows.
Speed: PTC32 was designed to rasterize fonts “on-the-fly” and does it in a heartbeat!
Font Substitution Map: A font map can be used to substitute metrically correct scalable fonts for bitmaps.
PCLXForm.exe is a script-driven, full batch transformation program that performs the functions of the other batch programs: PCLCVT and PCL2PDF.
PCLView.exe is a "Reader" program with end user GUI to Index, Retrieve, Extract, Normalize, View and Print native PCL files.
PCLPrint.exe is a command line-driven utility that converts PCL into an internal memory raster DIB or vector GDI image, and then prints to any Windows printer driver. This tool is used to print PCL to Windows GDI Only, PostScript or other non-PCL printers.
Img2PCL.exe is a graphical program used to create PCL Print streams for printing TIFF or JPEG images. It can also be used to create PCL overlays or macros for creating forms, logos, and signatures.
Img2PDF.exe is a graphical program used to create PDF files from TIFF or JPEG images.
Img2XPS.exe is a graphical program used to create XPS files from TIFF or JPEG images.
FILTER.exe is a utility program that searches and replaces within a PCL print stream to make pre-conversion modifications or corrections to the file. And, has "industry exclusive" PCL file optimizationoptions.
TNXDUMP.exe is a utility program that re-formats the text extracted from a PCL file into various ASCII formats for data migration applications.
