I need a Delphi component to be able to convert a PCL/HPGL stream (file) into a PDF document
My Delphi application currently essentially prints without any particular driver to PCL/HGPL compatible printers (HP...). The application issues all PCL/HPGL escapes sequences etc... directly to the network printers.
The request is to have some of these printouts in PDF format.
The easiest then is for my application to write into a temp file and have a converter doing the rest of the job...

It is not easy to do this.
I once found this commercial product:

Shure you can use GhostPCL, but it is only in C-Source:

and last but not least there is imagemagick:
