Below is a prn file, you can not open it arbitrarily, however, after you convert set color depth in line with your needs., you not only can view it but can
The convert prn to pcx and is as follows,to
pcltool.exe –bitcount 1 D:\in.prn D:\out.pcx
- D:\in.prn is to specify a prn filename or a directory for input,
- D:\out.pcx is to specify the pcx file name for output,
- –bitcount is to Set color depth for image conversion, 1 means that 1-bit color.
Now, please launch command prompt window, do as the picture suggests,
Click “start”>choose “Run”>input “cmd”>press “ok”
Press “enter”, you will have the command prompt window.
You continue to input the aboveto convert and when finishing, press “enter”, you will find
Till now, you could open the file to check the result, to achieve sound effect, the VeryPDF.com makes two pictures sticked together.
