San Diego, CA – February 13, 2014: PageTech, a leading global provider of HP PCL print stream transformation, optimization, and text extraction products, announced today that it has delivered a Linux version of its flagship PCL2PDF conversion software to HP Enterprise Services for implementation into California’s CalWORKS Information Network (CalWIN). The PCL to PDF transformation tool converts complex PCL5e print files generated by various legacy and enterprise systems into Adobe text-searchable PDF portable document format.
The CalWIN project supports over forty percent of California’s social service caseload, which serves over 25,000 desktops across 600+ sites in 18 counties. The largest system of its kind in the United States, CalWIN processes an average of 15 million transactions a day in 17 languages including: Arabic, Armenian, Bosnian, Cantonese, English, Farsi, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Khmer, Laotian, Mienh, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese.
HP Enterprise Services provides application development, network and server management services for CalWIN. Originally HP approached PageTech for its expertise in inserting UTF-8 Unicode text into HP PCL5e print streams with embedded TrueType (PCLETTO) font characters. These font characters are required for printing documents in any language to any PCL5e or newer printer or for conversion into PDF format.
Implementation of new subsystems to comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) generated even more complex PCL print streams from their systems. The existing PCL to PDF converter solution used by CalWIN could not meet these new requirements. HP turned to PageTech for a custom Linux version of PageTech’s PCL2PDF conversion software.
“HP already knew we were the leader in Windows-based PCL to PDF transformation solutions. Based on the relationship we built over the last ten years, HP had no hesitation asking us to port our PCL2PDF technology to Linux because they knew we could meet all their current and future requirements,” said Robert Pooley, president of PageTech. “Going forward this new Linux version will be added to our product line giving us PCL to PDF solutions for both Windows and Linux platforms.”
Established in 1993, Page Technology Marketing, Inc. (www.pagetech.com), with development based in San Diego, CA, USA, is the leading consultancy firm specializing in HP PCL print stream transformation, optimization, text extraction and manipulation products for developers, systems integrators and MIS departments.

I am evaluating PCL Works (img2pcl.exe) and it works fine. But now I want to print the PCL. I am used to printing text from from program direct to the printer so I could use some steps or examples to make this happen. I tried printing the PCL direct to the printer but all I get is large black boxes. Nothing else. Thanks in advance.

We have a number of reports that currently go to dot matrix printers, which I would like to start sending to laser. These reports are 132 column, and I want to avoid having to modify the report text if possible.
What I am doing so far, is sending codes:
1b45 (printer reset)
&l370U (set page offset)
(s18H (font pitch to 18)
page offset is to allow for hole punch/binding. With the above font pitch setting, the front of the page is printing perfectly. The back of the page though, is leaving too much space (about double what the space is on that edge on the front), on the right side. The result is that the left side of the text is getting cut off.
Any hints as to what codes to play with would be appreciated.

Can you please help me to find out the solution to be able to scroll down a PRN file by using your tool, I only can see 2 or 3 pages from a file with more than that pages.
Your help will be much appreciated!

I have a strange issue with some PCL files generated by a customer: We can look at them, print them, all no problem. But if we try to copy a part of the text, it comes out as gibberish. I am not proficient enough in PCL to figure out what exactly causes this. We cannot change the way the file is created, but if you have a product which allows me to convert it, let me know. You can have a look at the file any time.

I need to convert a .ttf file to .sfp and it looks like TTF2SFP will do the trick.
Could you please let me know the cost of this utility.
