MacPCLtoPDF is a simple application that is able to create PDF documents from PCL "print files."
You may either drop a PCL, PXL, or PRN file on to the application icon, or launch the application and select a PCL, PXL, or PRN file from a standard file listing. Drop or select only one file at a time.
After few seconds, the application will create a PDF file in the same directory with the original file, but with ".pdf" appended to the original file name.
If the output PDF file already exists, you will be prompted to overwrite it; if you choose Cancel, the application will quit without creating a new output file.
If you want the newly-created PDF file to open in your default PDF viewer (typically Adobe Reader under Windows, or Preview under OS X), then change the name of the application so that it includes the letter "v" perhaps by adding the word "viewer" to the filename.
For example, you might change the name to PCLtoPDFviewer or something similar, as long as it contains the letter "v". (Expert OS X users may edit the AppleScript application itself and change a setting near the top of the AppleScript instead of changing the name of the application.)
The application performs minimal error checking in order to determine whether the input file is in fact a PCL file. It may attempt to convert files that are not in fact PCL files; if so, simply delete the resulting PDF file if one is created.
If you try to convert a file that does not conform closely to the PCL specification, the application will prompt you before continuing. Of course, if you try to convert a file that is not a PCL file, the resulting PDF will be useless.
