Page Description Language (PDL) software is the brains behind devices that print, view or exchange files. PDF, PostScript, PCL, OpenXPS, and PPML are popular Page Description Languages that describe the content and layout of a document, typically to an imaging device or a mobile application. Since the PDL is responsible for what goes on the page, it’s critical for your PDL implementation to be accurate, robust and conform to the PDL specification.
There are endless combinations of PDL operators and attributes your product needs to correctly render. In addition, hundreds of different applications and apps produce documents. Each may exercise a different mix of PDL features to describe the original content. To be sure your implementation is successful, you must test these capabilities in depth and in a systematic manner.
That’s where we come in. QualityLogic has been developing PDL test tools for over three decades. We know PDL specifications and testing issues from the inside out. The test tools we’ve developed are industry standards used by leading printer, application, and technology vendors globally. We can also use our full suite of tools to test your printer or MFP for you.
