This PCL 6 printer driver for the Xerox 4590 PCL 6 multifunctional printer device allows its supported device to implement printing with the PCL 6 PDL (page description language). This PCL 6 driver consists of the PCL 6 Enhanced, the PCL 6 Standard and the Font Synthesis. The PCL 6 Enhanced is a PDL that is object oriented and optimized to be used for printing from graphical user interfaces (GUI) like Windows and compressed for optimizing throughput. On the other hand, the PCL 6 Standard is equivalent to the PCL 5c and 5e which is meant to deliver backward compatibility, while the Font Synthesis delivers storage for fonts and forms, font management and scalable fonts. PCL 6 provides a modular architecture which can be effortlessly altered for future printer devices. It features faster printing of complicated graphics, faster application return, enhanced WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), improved data streams to lessen network traffic, full backward compatibility and enhanced print quality.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The PCL 6 PDL supported by this driver version for the Xerox 4590 PCL 6 multifunctional printer device is an object oriented and stack based protocol very similar to the page description language PostScript. It is however limited to binary encoding unlike PostScript which enables the sending of either plain text or binary code. The code examples and plain text commands exhibited in the programming documentation for the PCL 6 are intended to be compiled with a such as the HP JetASM prior to sending to the printer. The PCL 6 was developed to equal the Windows GDI drawing model since with this way, the printer driver of Windows can simply pass through the commands of GDI with little alterations. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Xerox 4590 PCL 6 errors before installing any driver updates.
