ICCLIB implements support for reading and writing of color profile files that conform to the International Color Consortium (ICC) Profile Format Specification, Version 3.4. The ICC Profile Format is a cross-platform device profile format that can be used to translate color data created on one device into another device's native color space. See the profile specification at color.org. In summary ICCLIB provides support for all version 3.4 header elements, Tags, and Tag Types, conversion to/from machine native representation of all data types, user-defined Tags, adding/deleting Tags, Tag type sharing within a file (often used for sharing LUTs amongst intents), reading/writing embedded profiles, a single function for transforming color values through a profile (including support for intents, forward and reverse transforms, gamut lookup or preview lookup), support and code examples for creating all profile types, monochrome, matrix, and Lut, and it loads Tag Types on demand to conserve memory space.
Xpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. (These are also sometimes also called 'Acrobat' files, from the name of Adobe's PDF software.) The Xpdf project also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and various other utilities. It runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2. The non-X components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems, and should run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler. Xpdf is designed to be small and efficient. It can use Type 1 and TrueType fonts.
PDFreactor is a formatting processor to convert HTML and XML to PDF. It uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to define page layout and styles. It allows you to dynamically generate PDF documents such as invoices, delivery notes, shipping documents, or print versions of Web content on-the-fly. Vector graphics (SVG), barcodes, MathML, XSLT, and CMYK colors are supported. All common J2EE application servers are supported. Complete .NET, PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby APIs are included. Direct integration into automatic build processes using Apache Ant is also possible.
Moonshiner is a graphical frontend for Ghostscript's PostScript-to-PDF converter. While Ghostscript (and its wrapper ps2pdf) is a very powerful instrument, it is quite challenging to use its parameters on the command line, especially if you often change the settings as to what kind of color conversion, image resampling, etc. you want Ghostscript to perform. While the author has never used Adobe's Distiller, and thus cannot really compare the two, Moonshiner (as the name suggests) is supposed to be a work-alike for the Linux world (at least GUI-wise, as the actual work is of course done by Ghostscript).
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. It uses sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. It provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more. It can currently create PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files, as well as LaTeX files for the text fragments.
Prima is an extensible Perl toolkit for multi-platform GUI development. Supported platforms include Linux, Windows NT/9x/2K, OS/2, and UNIX/X11 workstations (FreeBSD, IRIX, SunOS, Solaris, and others). The toolkit contains a rich set of standard widgets and has emphasis on 2D image processing tasks. A Perl program using Prima looks and behaves identically on X, Win32, and OS/2 PM.
Apache XML Graphics Commons is a library that consists of several reusable components used by Apache Batik and Apache FOP. Many of these components can easily be used separately outside the domains of SVG and XSL-FO. You will find components such as a PDF library, an RTF library, Graphics2D implementations that let you generate PDF and PostScript files, and much more.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
