DSI: Open Source PCL Viewer

Document Systems Inc. has released a new PCL viewer that will allow users to view the printer control language that computers use to send documents to print. In the past, the only way to view these files was to buy a commercial PCL viewer. SwiftView has been the industry leader in this technology.

The DSI viewer is being distributed for free as open source software and is available through DSI or through SourceForge, an online community of open source programmers. Open source means that not only can anyone have the software for free, but DSI is making the source code available to anyone who wants to use it.

Don Iannitti, CEO of DSI, expects makers of other technologies to integrate the PCL viewer into their technologies in the future.
