Hp2xx first converts all HP-GL data into pure vectors and buffers them internally. It then converts these vectors into a specified output format (vector modes), or rasterizes them (raster modes) on an internal bitmap. In raster modes, the program then translates the bitmap into the output format. The supported output formats include Encapsulated PostScript, PCX, IMG, TIFF, PNG, and several formats intended to facilitate the generation of graphics within TeX documents. Output is also printable on PCL-capable devices (eg the Hewlett-packard LaserJet series), and it may be used as a HP-GL previewer on many platforms, eg X11 and DOS (VGA).
