A while ago someone suggest to print graphics after importing them in Word 
perfect. Here is the text:

(...) I have had
good lick using the HPGL output from GCG.  Just type HPGL, and you will get the 

use HPGL graphics with what device:
 Please choose one ( * HP7550 * ) 

You enter the most appropriate device, and then are asked:
 To what
 port is your HP7550 connected (* /dev/tty15 *) 

If you enter a file name to this question, for example, test.plt

GCG replies:
What page size:
 A3       (for 11 x 17 inch)
 A4       (for 8.5 x 11 inch)
 Please choose one (A3 or A4) (* A4 *) 

A CR chooses the default
 Plotting Configuration set to: 
       Language: hpd 
         Device: HP7550
  Port or Queue: test.plt
 Using a paper size of A4.

When  GCG program plots, the output is sent to the file you named, as HPGL code.

This file can be downloaded (FTP or Kermit [use binary transfer mode]) and then
plotted on a plotter, printed on an HPLJII or imported into Corel Draw or other
programs.  WordPerfect also does a good job with HPGL files.  

I tried the same procedure with Word but the only thing I get is the frame of 
the graphic. Anyone ever succeeded in importing gcg graphics in Word 6.0?

Thank you for the help
