Where can I find PCL5 language documentation? by DansDadUK
Posted: 9 Jun 06 (Edited 10 Jun 16)

The following link provides a brief history of the PCL language, and links to the PCL Technical Reference manual, and also to other PCL5 & PJL manuals:


Be aware that some of the manuals (in PDF format) are multi-megabyte downloads.

Alternatively, navigate to the developer web site:

http://www.hpdevelopersolutions.com - no longer valid; new site is: https://spp.itcs.hp.com/spp/

Then select the "Public Software Development Kits" option.

Then select the "LaserJet and Digital Sender" kit area.

Then select the "Printer Languages | PCL 5 | PCL 5 documents" folder, which gives access to various PCL5 documents (most are in PDF format).
