This is somehow easy to achieve, once you are able to transfer files from your HP48G to your computer. I’ve been doing this for such a long time, in order to store my original HP41/HP42/HP28 listings, that I thought everyone else knew the 'how-to'.
As explained, you’ll need the specific HP48G inprt file to capture the IR originated listings and, if you are dealing with HP41 programs, you'll also need Leo Duran's lifutil (I still use the original DOS version...) to convert the captured listings to printable barcode. I must confess I have not been doing this for some time, but I remember reading about a Windows® version of Duran’s lifutil. I also remember that I could generate HPGL coded barcodes that printed perfectly fine in my HP1100 laser printer, but I was never able to add the barcodes to, say, a Word®-based document. I once found an HPGL converter that returned convenient graphics from the HPGL file with the barcode data that could be inserted in a Word®-based document, but the line numbers that follow each row of the barcode were converted to a series of dots, though. No numbering...
I think better results may be achieved with newer converters and newer Word® versions, but I did not test any.
Sorry not being of further help.
