    I have looked at many webpages and still unable to solve
    this issue. Maybe someone here can help. My printer broke down but I kept the windows printer spool file (.spl) and need to view the data from it since this is all I have from the document. The spool (.spl) file has a EMF header and was created from pcl6.
    I wish to view that file but all I get is garbled text if I open it with wordpad etc. Is there any program or way that I can view it because the data(only text not photos) is in that spool file(3 Megs in size) but the printer broke down and I have no way of viewing it.

    I tried Ghost script and other PCL viewers with out much luck since my file is a .spl

    Please help.. :(

    Thank you in advance,
