 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.
