Get HP2PICT from ftp.bio.indiana.edu. It will convert an HPGL file to PICT
format which can then be edited in your draw program (we use SuperPaint with
good results). Each object in the original HPGL file is rendered as an 
individual object in the PICT file, allowing editing of individual elements.
