The package hp2xx is now available with the Cygwin distribution:

 o (Homepage)


The hp2xx program is a versatile tool to convert vector-oriented graphics data given in
Hewlett-Packard's HP-GL plotter language into a variety of popular graphics formats,
both vector- and raster-oriented. The various supported output formats include
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), PCX, IMG, and several formats intended to facilitate
the generation of graphics within TeX documents. In addition, hp2xx output is printable
on the HP Laserjet/Deskjet printer series, and it may be used as a HP-GL previewer on
many platforms, e.g., X11 and DOS (VGA).



To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Graphics"
and then click on the appropriate fields until the above announced
version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
