    I have used PrintGL (http://www.concentric.net/~ravitz/) for
    high-quality print from SkyMap's .hgl files.
    
    It supports many printers,but mostly I used the /FW% to drive the
    Windows default printer.
    It has many options to scale and crop, and to represent the 
    pen colour (SP) directive in HPGL as any kind of dot/dashed lines 
    and/or colour when available.
    
    As I mentioned in another mail, I use IrfanView to produce 
    (larger but) compressed .gif files from SkyMap .bmp files.
