Description

Use the PCL to AFP transform to transform a PCL data stream file into an AFP data stream file.

If you specify multiple values of the same flag, PCL to AFP uses the last value specified, except for the -p flag. Multiple values of the -p flag are accumulated and the pages identified for printing are printed in normal numerical sequence, regardless of the order you specify.

The PCL to AFP transform also uses the Line Printer embedded bitmap font.

Font substitution occurs when a set of capabilities, such as Symbol Set, Spacing, Pitch, and Typeface, are compared to the fonts available to the rip, and the closest match wins. You cannot disable font substitution. If an error occurs during font substitution, the error is not logged. When a custom font is included in the data stream, and the PCL job refers to it, the custom font is used.
