hp2xx reads HPGL ASCII source files, interprets them, and converts them into either another vector-oriented format or one of several rasterfile formats. Currently, its HPGL parser recognizes a subset of the HP 7550A command set. Some high-level functions like filled polygons are missing. Also, only the basic fixed character set 0 is supported. Beside these limitations, hp2xx has proven to work with many HP-GL sources without any trouble. In addition, hp2xx includes an X11 previewer for HPGL files. Supported vector formats are: TeX/Metafont, emTex-specials, TeX/epic-Macros, and -I PostScript. Supported raster formats are: HP-PCL, PCX, PIC, IMG, PBM, and previews. However, generation of other formats is made easy for programmers because of hp2xx's modular struc- ture.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
