for Page Description Language
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
Page Description Language
(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.
