Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert PCL to MHTML in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert PCL file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to MHTML.
C++ API to Render PCL to MHTML
Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load PCL file with an instance of Document class reference auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.pcl"); // save PCL as a DOC doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); // load DOC with an instance of Document System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc"); // save document as Mhtml wordDoc->Save(u"output.Mhtml");
Change Password of PCL Document via C++
In the process of rendering PCL to MHTML, you can open a password protected PCL and also change its password. In order to change the password of a PCL file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.
// load an existing PCL Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.pcl", L"owner"); // change password of PCL Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Restrict MHTML File Editing via C++
You can also restrict MHTML file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.
// load Doc with an instance of Document auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc"); // document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed. doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password"); // save the protected document. doc->Save(u"Protected.Mhtml");

PCL What is PCL File Format?
PCL stands for Printer Command Language which is a Page Description Language introduced by Hewlett Packard (HP). HP created PCL to provide an efficient way for controlling printer features across many different printing devices. The format was originally developed for HP’s dot matrix and Inkjet printers, but has been part of various thermal, matrix and page printers with the passage of time. The format underwent several different revisions, resulting in different versions where each version was enhanced to meet the demands of time with respect to the printer control features. Today, PCL is the most widely spread printer language in the laster printer market.Read More
MHTML What is MHTML File Format?
Files with MHTML extension represent a web page archive format that can be created by a number of different applications. The format is known as archive format because it saves the web HTML code and associated resources in a single file.
