HPGL is the Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language designed for
specifying 2D graphical information for the HP range of plotters. It was
not intended as an interchange format but some software suppliers use it
as such. HPGL is a command set embedded in the ROM of pen plotters to
help reduce the work required by applications programmers to create
plotted output. HPGL uses two-letter mnemonics as instructions for
drawing lines, circles, text, and simple symbols. HPGL is the primary
printer control language used by Hewlett-Packard plotters. It later
became a standard for almost all plotters.
