What is hp2 file? How to open hp2 files?

File type specification:

Graphics file type icon Graphics file type

hp2 file icon: hp2 filetype icon

File extension hp2 is used for one of the graphic formats from HP. HPGL, sometimes hyphenated as HP-GL, is the primary printer control language used by Hewlett-Packard plotters.

The name is an initialism for Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language. It later became a standard for almost all plotters. Hewlett-Packard's printers also usually support HPGL in addition to PCL.

This hp2 file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
