First,you should know what is a PCL file.PCL is the standard print format for HP LaserJet-compatible printers. If you are now printing to a laser printer, you are using PCL. PCL files can be created from any Windows application by simply "printing to file" with a LaserJet-compatible printer and PCL driver set as the current Windows printer, or by redirecting a UNIX LaserJet-compatible printer queue to a file. This is easy to do, requires no licensed software and is inherently a true representation of the document.
