How to print PCL file output to PDF file instead of printer?
We have files generated that are PCL and (after much tweaking of settings) can print them to physical printers, but we need to print to PDF files. Have installed VeryPDF Virtual PDF Printer (PDFcamp Printer), which will print a web page or document nicely as a PDF... but sending the PCL file it prints the PCL commands as literal text. Have changed/forced queue to raw, and searched the entire internets to no avail, and still cannot get the PCL file to print to a PDF-format file. We have a vended solution on an older machine, but with Linux being open-sourced and fancy-new... how do you take a PCL file output from an application and send it straight as a PDF file??? Thanks for any help/guidance.

For these questions, the simple answer is "VeryPDF SPL to PDF Converter Command Line", you can use "VeryPDF SPL to PDF Converter Command Line" to convert from SPL, PRN, PCL, PXL, PS, XPS, PDF etc. spool formats to PDF files easily, just download it and enjoy it!
