PCL & PS
PCL (Printer Command Language) is a page description language (PDL) developed by Hewlett-Packard as a printer protocol and has become a de facto industry standard. Almost half the print jobs in the world are in HP (Hewlett-Packard) PCL format.
PS (Postscript) is a device independent programming language with powerful graphics capabilities. On most operating systems a postscript file will end in an extension ".ps" or an extension ".eps" for an encapsulated postscript file, which is widely used in desktop and electronic publishing areas. PostScript became commercially successful due to the introduction of the graphical user interface, allowing designers to directly lay out pages for eventual output on laser printers.
