How to create a print filter that print text & image?

Currently, I have a print filter that takes a text file, that convert it into PCL which then gets to a HP printer. This works.

Now I need to embedded a image file within the text file.

I'm able to convert the image file into PCL and I can cat both files together to into a single document which works. The challenge is that I can't place the image properly within the document. What kind of tools should I be using here?

Thank you,

If all you need to do is move the image around, PCL has X and Y positioning commands.

If you need to automatically wrap text around your image and such, I think you're reaching the bounds of what PCL can do for you, and should start using a word processor before you end up writing your own from scratch.
