MacPCLtoPDF for Mac
MacPCLtoPDF is a Mac OS X AppleScript application that enables you to effortlessly convert PCL files into PDFs by making use of the open source GhostPCL engine. Since the engine is integrated in the software bundle, all you have to do is drop the PCL, PXL, or PRN file you want to process on top of the MacPCLtoPDF icon.
Unobtrusive conversion utility designed to work with “print files”
Due to its minimalist user interface, working with the MacPCLtoPDF utility will prove to be extremely straightforward: launch the app and use the file list to select the item you want to process, or take advantage of the drag and drop functionalities. However, keep in mind that MacPCLtoPDF can process only one file at the time.
The app will automatically generate the PDF document in the same folder as the source file. If the directory contains another PDF file with the same name, you will be prompted to overwrite it (of course, you can stop the process if you do not want to replace the PDF).
Effortlessly send the newly created PDF to a viewer application
By default, the MacPCLtoPDF app only creates the PDF file, but if you want to have it automatically sent to your default PDF viewing utility, all you have to do is add the “v” letter to the app’s name.
If you do not want to change the application name, simply open the main AppleScript bundled in the app package and change the value of the “viewAfterConverting” parameter from “false” to “true”.
Straightforward solution for transforming “print files” into PDF documents
MacPCLtoPDF proposes a streamlined workflow for quickly converting PCL, PXL, or PRN files into PDFs with minimal effort. Keep in mind that the app checks the source file for errors and cannot generate usable PDFs if the initial file does not respect the PCL specifications.
