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.
CUPS-PDF is a PDF writer backend for CUPS. It is designed to produce PDF files in a heterogeneous network by providing a PDF printer on the central fileserver. It will convert files printed to its queue in CUPS to PDF and put them in a per-user-based directory structure. It can execute post-processing scripts, e.g. to allow mailing the results to the user.
Barcode4J is a barcode generation package. The following symbologies are currently implemented: Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 39, Codabar, Code 128, UPC-A and UPC-E (with supplementals), EAN-13 and EAN-8 (with supplementals), EAN-128, POSTNET, Royal Mail Customer Barcode, PDF417, and DataMatrix. Supported output formats are SVG, EPS (Encapsulated PostScript), Bitmap images (such as PNG or JPEG), and Java2D (AWT). Additional features include two APIs (XML-oriented and Bean-style), a Servlet with support for SVG, EPS, and bitmap output, a command-line interface, a demonstration applet, and extensions for Apache Xalan-J, SAXON, and Apache FOP.
TFORMer is a versatile barcode label printing and reporting program. It provides a uniform solution for creating all types of documents like labels, forms, serial letters, lists, and reports. TFORMer is used on workstations, as a server-based output system or as a report generator SDK. Documents are created with the graphical layout editor TFORMer Designer. For printing purposes, data is entered manually or imported from databases or files. Templates for compliance labeling (e.g. AIAG, VDA, DHL, GS1, etc.) reduce design efforts significantly. For software developers, the output functionality is available with TFORMer Runtime. This cross-platform reporting SDK supports all types of barcodes, direct printing, PostScript, HTML, ZPL-II, and image and PDF creation. It integrates perfectly into client and server solutions. APIs are available for .NET, DLL, COM, and Java.
CPS (Coherent Printing System) is a Foomatic/GhostScript-based print spooling system for Linux which controls printers correctly even when the same physical printer is used in several different modes under different names (e.g., draft, colour, and greyscale on the same inkjet). All spooling is handled by the central daemon which allows network job submission to work without installing the print daemon, Foomatic, or GhostScript on the client machines. Samba printing is also catered for.
pdfposter can be used to create a large poster by building it from multple pages and/or printing it on large media. It expects as input a PDF file, normally printing on a single page. The output is again a PDF file, maybe containing multiple pages together, thus building the poster. The input page will be scaled to obtain the desired size. This is much like poster does for Postscript files, but works with PDF instead, since sometimes poster does not like your files converted from PDF. Indeed, pdfposter was inspired by poster.
