If it doesn’t render its not going to end up in a PDF either. GhostPCL is PCL technology; it is not intended to be a finished software application Generally the GhostPCL languages are compliant with the Genoa ( now.

And they’ve mostly handled PCL etc. If you can get UniVerse to produce PostScript output, it’d be trivial But maybe someone else knows of a solution. This answer on SO could be what you’re looking for.
Not able to change the output from PCL to GS easily, and there is a vended solution expensive out there so we are hoping an open-sourced alternative exists. Have found GhostPCL but can’t figure out how to use it as a driver for a virtual printer. Alex Stragies 3, 16 I had found GhostPCL and extracted the tarball, but couldn’t figure out how to use it for the life of me: Thanks for your command line example, I was able to make that owl. There is vended software, but no open-source drivers apparently: Performance issues aren’t a concern, I think our virtual server has dozens of cores and a massive amount of RAM ; Bottom line is finding an open-sourced driver for sending PCL to a virtual printer, that will generate a PDF.
Should be simple but proving to be very vexing: Not neat, but free is good. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook.
