What is pcm file? How to open pcm files?

File type specification:

System file type icon System file type

The PCM file extension was used for files that contain HP printer drives.

All HP PCL drivers have an option to install additional fonts or font DIMMs, but many of these font installers do not install Printer Cartridge Metrics (PCM) files. HP Font Solutions products like Bar Codes and More or MICR DIMM come with PCM files, so these fonts cannot be installed or accessed from all Windows printers drivers. PCMs provide printer drivers with metrics required to select SIMM or cartridge fonts for Windows applications.

Help how to open PCM files:

Unless there are suggested applications listed below the extension description, that are able to open the system files, there is usually no way to directly open or access system files as their functionality is only as part of the operating system.

Any attempts to edit system files is strongly discouraged, as it can cause the system to be corrupted and not work properly.

How to convert file with extension PCM:

Unless there are suggested applications listed below the extension description, that are able to convert the system files, there is usually no way to convert system files into any other file format.

Any attempts to rename system files is strongly discouraged, as it can cause the system to be corrupted and not work properly.
