Enhanced PAL

PAL language for Higgins E2 printers is a powerful printing and programming language. E2 printers work like any other printer when using a PAL Windows driver or other software written to take advantage of PAL. But what if the PC or Host application speaks another language? Many host applications have been written to support a specific type of printer and can’t be easily changed to support other printer type without costly upgrades or programming changes.

Using PAL, a program is written which “translates” the current language into the new desired label format. This program is then stored in the printer where it continuously does its job.
