 Some  programs offer the output of HPGL data.  This can sometime have big
advantages,  e.g.   in CAD programs.  Instead of calculating huge bitmaps,
you  just  tell your printer "draw me a line from here to there; draw me a
circle with the diameter ...".  The rest is done by your printer.

 Although  language  is  designed  for  plotters, many other printers also
support  it  (See   Supported Printers ).  If you also own such a printer,
Plot-Handler  is  very  handy  to  you.   It invokes the HPGL mode of your
printer, sends the data to it and puts your printer back into the standard
mode.

 If  you  don't  own  a  printer, which supports HPGL, sorry!  (But if you
really want to use HPGL, there exists another program called Plot-Handler,
which  turns  every  graphics  printer  into a HPGL printer (It is part of
FF333  "MultiPlot"  and FF698 "SCRAM500").  In this case you don't need my
Plot-Handler anymore.
