    Definition of HP's PCL 6

    Whereas the commands for Hewlett Packard's Printer Control Language (PCL) versions up to and including PCL 5e are defined and can be used by the determined geek to influence a printer datastream, there seems to be no such information available for PCL6. Examination of PCL6 datastreams (sent to file) seem to indicate that the "commands" have been turned into hexadecimal code, for which no interpretation is available.

    Is anyone extremely knowledgeable in this area?

    Thanks!

    John,

    There is some information available on the HP discussion forum including a pointer to a PCL XL Feature Reference Protocol

    Thanks, Stuart - I'll check it out, although at first glance many/most of the PDF pages appear not to want to display!
