Title: PCL conversion of JETSEND images

Abstract: Conversion of JETSEND-compressed image data into PCL raster image data compatible with a PCL printer. The JETSEND-compressed image data is not decompressed prior to conversion of PCL raster image data, but rather is converted to a PCL raster image in situ by monitoring control byte information in the compressed image data so as to determine where one scan line ends and another begins.
