[Noisebridge-discuss] Sending HPGL (e.g. converted PostScript) to Vinyl cutter from the command line

So when you are doing precision work that you want to cut with the Vinyl
cutter, you typically don't want to be using InkScape (which is more
helping with artistic things), but typically use other tools that directly
generate PostScript or similar (personally, I like to write the PostScript
directly, because it is essentially a very comfortable fully featured 2D
programmable CAD program).

Using that with the vinyl cutter turns out to be easy; it even works with
faster serial line speeds than the InkScape plugin. Also, much more user
friendly, you never have to leave the comfort of your shell :)
