Broaden your selection: Category/Printing
- Program started as a text to PostScript converter, with pretty printing and all the expected features of this kind of program, but it can now handle other file types (PostScript, Texinfo, DVI, web-authoring, PDF, etc.) provided you have the necessary tools. While highly configurable, everything was designed so that even a novice can do complicated PostScript manipulations. For instance, the program can delegate the processing of some files to other filters (such as groff, texi2dvi, dvips, gzip,etc.) which allows a uniform treatment (n-up, page selection, duples, etc.) of heterogeneous files It also includes support for a wide range of programming languages, encodings (ISO Latins, Cyrillic, etc.), medias, and Native Language Support (NLS).
- ADG: Automatic Drawing Generation
- The ADG library (Automatic Drawing Generation) is a set of functions focused on automating the drawing of mechanical parts. It is not a CAD system but a library providing a non-interactive canvas where you can put common CAD entities such as paths, xatches and quotes, to create your technical drawings. The final result can be displayed inside a GTK+ widget or exported to any cairo available format, such as PostScript and PDF documents or PNG and SVG images.
- Apsfilter is a magic print filter with automatic file type recognition. It features on-the-fly decompression and conversion, and works on both PostScript and non-PostScript (via Ghostscript) graphical printers. This package makes printing many file formats much easier. Among the supported formats are: gzip, bzip2, compress, freeze, pack, ASCII, BMP, data (PCL, etc.), DVI, FBM, FIG, FITS, GIF, Group 3 fax, HTML, IFF ILBM, JPEG, Kodak Photo CD, MGR, MIFF, PBM/PGM/PNM/PPM, PDF, PNG, PostScript, RLE, SGI, Sketch, Sun raster, Targa, TIFF, troff, WPG, X pixmap, XCF. Note that actual support depends on the installed filter programs.
- Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript (BWIPP) generates all barcode formats entirely within PostScript so that the process of converting the input data into the printed output can be performed by the printer or RIP itself. This is ideal for variable data printing (VDP) and avoids the need to re-implement the barcode generation process whenever your language needs change. Since this resource is written in PostScript and interpreted within the virtual machine of a printer it is compatible with any operating system and hardware platform.
- Enscript converts ASCII files to PostScript and stores generated output to a file or sends it directly to the printer. It includes features for "pretty-printing" (language sensitive code highlighting) in several programming languages. It supports ten different input encodings, Adobe Font Metrics files, and user defined fancy headers. AFM files for the most common PostScript fonts are included in the distribution; the program itself can download PostScript fonts. Other features include language sensitive highlighting, N-up printing, inlined EPS images, comments, and the ability to change body color and font on the fly.
- GGV, the Gnome GhostView, is a Gnome PostScript document previewer. It can also preview PDFs, but as it is not a native PDF viewer, it does not take advantage of all the features of the PDF format. Users are strongly discouraged from using it as their PDF viewer - use GPdf instead! GGV was developed using the gv codebase.
- Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript language and the PDF file format. It also includes a C library that implements the graphics capabilities of the PostScript language. It supports a wide variety of output file formats and printers.
- 'GtkPSproc' is a GUI frontend for 'psutils'. It allows you to adjust all programs to your printer type (for example, always sending the pages in reverse order), to group two or more pages on a single sheet, to print booklets, and to easily print in double-sided fashion. It is designed to work from nearly all programs that call LPR, acting as an intermediary between the program and LPR, but it can work alone, too.
- GV (GNU Ghostview) is a graphical user interface to the Ghostscript interpreter. With it, one can view and navigate through PostScript and PDF documents in X Windows. This package is an improved derivation of Timothy O. Theisen's Ghostview, originally developed by Johannes Plass.
- Library to create PostScript files
- pslib is a C-library for generating PostScript files with little effort. It offers an easy way of generating PostScript text and graphics. Its text function are very sophisticated and support kerning, ligatures and some basic formatting. Hypertext functions are supported through pdfmarks which makes pslib in combination with ghostscript a viable alternative for libraries creating PDF.
