What is ZPL?
Zebra Programming Language (ZPL) is a page description language from Zebra Technologies, used primarily for labeling applications. The original language was superseded by ZPL II, but it is not fully compatible with the older version. ZPL II is supported by some non-Zebra label printers.
How ZPL Works
This simple programming language supports basic shapes such as circles, ellipses, horizontal and diagonal lines, and boxes. You can also use various parameters to manipulate these shapes. For instance, you can draw a simple horizontal line by typing the command GB. You can adjust its height and width by adjusting the values in the respective fields. You can also draw embedded images using the same language.
