An HPGL(Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language) file contains an instruction set for plotter control, developed by Hewlett-Packard. Hewlett-Packard plotters use this file to draw and print vector and raster content on the paper.
Files having extension .BMP represent Bitmap Image files that are used to store bitmap digital images. These images are independent of graphics adapter and are also called device independent bitmap (DIB) file format. This independency serves the purpose of opening the file on multiple platforms such as Microsoft Windows and Mac. The BMP file format can store data as two-dimensional digital images in both monochrome as well as color format with various colour depths.
You can also convert PLT into many other file formats. Please see the complete list below.
