The Black Ice Printer Drivers can convert any printable file into a variety of formats, including DCX.

DCX - This is a multi-page version of PCX file format originated by Intel for faxing.

The DCX format is an early format which uses the RLE minimal compression technique. This is a good compression because to decompress a file the needed information can be found in the preceeding bits not in any following bits.

The DCX image format is one of the oldest raster formats. It was originally designed by ZSoft to be used by PC Paintbrush for MS-DOS. Microsoft later acquired the right to use the DCX format for Microsoft Paintbrush for Windows indirectly increasing the format's popularity.

The DCX files format supports: 1, 4, 8, 24 bits per pixel.
