Summary: Expands, simplifies and normalises HPGL plotter files.
If your HPGL files won't import, or just won't do so correctly, try this.
Description: HPGL plot files come in many flavours, of varying
complexity. HPGLEXP reduces them to lowest-common-denominator HPGL,
i.e. just moves, draws, and pen selections - all the high-level stuff
is emulated by a "virtual plotter" which outputs only
straight lines. HPGLEXP is of particular use as an import
pre-processor; even the most primitive of HPGL-import/read routines
will understand a plot file processed by HPGLEXP.
Type: DOS application; can be run from the command line, in
batch processes, or in a Windows 9x DOS box.
Published as: Shareware. Please read the supplied documentation
for licensing information.
Status: V0.93, released November 5, 1996.
