Meaning of PAGE DESCRIPTION LANGUAGE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(PDL) A language such as adobe systems, inc.'s postscript or xerox's interpress which allows the appearance of a printed page to be described in a high-level, device-independent way. Printing then becomes a two-stage process: an application program produces a description in the language, which is then interpreted by a specific output device. Such a language can therefore serve as an interchange standard for transmission and storage of printable documents.
