This makes me wonder. I am still doing conversion to PCL, either through grolj4 or Ghostscript, because the printer memory requirements are lower for printing PCL than PS (according to HP). Does anyone have some advise on what amount of printer memory would be OK for doing direct PS printing without too many printing delays? I have a LaserJet 5.
