time for another plug:
  anonymous ftp to ftp.bio.indiana.edu,
  cd util/mac
  get hp2pict.hqx

This hp2pict is a hypercard stack of mine that converts simple hpgl
to mac pictures.  It will handle lines, text, and such, but lacks
handling of fancier hpgl codes.  There are commercial programs for that
(I think) but cannot advise of any.
