As I recall (and it has been several years ...), 20/20 sends plotting
commands to /dev/plot.  You have to select the type of plotter connected
to that device.  We typically used a named pipe named /dev/plot to
collect the data and process it as we owned no plotters.  I had a program
which converted the HP-GL commands that 20/20 was outputting, and
converted them to libplot commands.  The libplot commands were then
converted into bit-mapped operations for a HP LaserJet II printer.

Your milage will vary, of course, depending on what hardware you have at
your disposal.
