HPGL, which is also oftentimes referred to as HP-GL, is a Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language that is clearly used by Hewlett-Packard plotters. Even though this brand of plotters is very widespread, the file format itself is not. It cannot be viewed with standard software. Instead, expensive programs are required to open HPGL files. Among them are IMSI TurboCAD Deluxe 18, priced at $130, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 priced at as much as $449, ACD Systems Canvas 12 priced even higher at $599, CADSoftTools ABViewer priced at $130, and ArtSoft Mach priced at $175.
