Page Description Languages (PDL)

A page description language (PDL) is a language that describes the appearance of a printed page. It receives a code of a document sent to a printing device, interprets it and uses it to instruct the printing device where and how to place text and graphics onto the print page.

The most common page description languages are PCL 5, PCL 6 (XL) and PostScript.
