I made small Gtk-Perl software that draws any HPGL file to screen and
optionaly prints out coordinates. This software is partially (mostly idea) based on QBasic software
- HPGL file selected with normal fileselecting screen.
- Scaling of picture 1-100 % to fit on the screen.
- Optional coordinate output
Take a look to sourcecode.
