PCL to PDF conversion


I need for a VB application an method to convert PCL to PDF format? I already used the OCX from Visual Software but that one doesn't has the quality I need. Hope someone can help me with this problem?

Try GhostPCL with Ghostscript here: http://www.artifex.com/downloads/. Using GhostPCL library you can produce PDFs or print PCL files. It's very advanced, but will need more effort to integrate with your app than any OCX. If you need to finish your program fast, you can just invoke command like this (from inside VB app):

pcl6 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=mypcl.pdf mypcl.pcl

But that is a poor man's solution...
