foo2hbpl is an open source printer driver for printers that use the HBPL version 2 wire protocol for their print data, such as the Dell 1355, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, or the Xerox WorkCentre 6015. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, HBPL printers are raster printers that happen to use a very efficient wire protocol. HBPL is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc. This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components to the foo2hbpl printer driver: foo2hbpl2 (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hbpl2-wrapper (a shell script (compatible with foomatic) that runs ghostscript and foo2hbpl in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hbpl2-wrapper); and hbpldecode (a tool for developers to inspect HBPL streams).
JImageView an image viewer with no extra features. It is essentially an image display plus a menu-bar which includes the following actions: Rotate (Clockwise, Counter Clockwise, Rotate Normal); Scale (Zoom In, Zoom Out, Zoom to fit, Zoom Normal); Mirror (Flip Horizontally, Flip Vertically, Flip Normal); Fullscreen display; Slideshow mode; and Print.
foo2hiperc is a printer driver for printers that use the HIPERC wire protocol for their print data, such as the Oki C3400n and the Oki C5500n. It uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components: foo2hiperc (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hiperc-wrapper (runs ghostscript and foo2hiperc in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the user's Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hiperc-wrapper); and hipercdecode (a tool for developers to inspect HIPERC streams).
xhtml2pdf converts HTML/XHTML/XHML to PDF using the ReportLab Toolkit, the HTML5lib, and pyPdf. It supports HTML 5 and CSS 2.1 (and some of CSS 3). The main benefit of this tool that a user with Web skills like HTML and CSS is able to generate PDF templates very quickly without learning new technologies.
PrinterSetup is a flexible printer setup system. It is tailored to institutions with more than 20 deployed printers. It is designed to work with CUPS on Mac OS X. PrinterSetup is a component of PrintingWorks, a print accounting solution. There is limited documentation. Apple package deployment requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and is untested on earlier versions. Apple package development requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and Xcode 3.0 or later.
Optar is a software codec that generates 2D bar codes for data storage on paper using a black and white laser printer and scanner. It fits 200kB on an A4 page, uses Golay forward error correction codes to ensure reliability, and can also be used to store data on photographic film.
dxf allows you to easily open and edit DXF (Drawing eXchange Format) files. You can export them to various image formats (BMP, PNG, GIF, etc.) or print files. Many entites are supported (lines, arcs, circles, polylines, text, trace, and solids), as well as all colors including BYLAYER. Background color can be changed from black to white. LTYPE (linetypes) are partially supported.
