Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert TEX to PCL in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert TEX file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to PCL.
C++ API to Render TEX to PCL
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 TEX file with an instance of Document class reference auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.tex"); // save TEX 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 Pcl wordDoc->Save(u"output.Pcl");
Change Password of TEX Document via C++
In the process of rendering TEX to PCL, you can open a password protected TEX and also change its password. In order to change the password of a TEX 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 TEX Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.tex", L"owner"); // change password of TEX Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Restrict PCL File Editing via C++
You can also restrict PCL 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.Pcl");

TEX What is TEX File Format?
TeX is a language that comprises of programming as well as mark-up features, used to typeset documents. Donald Knuth from Stanford University, is the creator of this resourceful typesetting system. Across the world, TeX is the ultimate choice of authors and publishers to produce high quality technical documents. TeX performs an outstanding job of formatting complex mathematical expressions. In conjunction with a high-quality phototypesetter, TeX competes the results generated by the best traditional typesetting systems. Therefore regarded as the classiest digital typographical systems.Read More
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
