Ansiprint is a utility for printing text files (or stdin) from remote terminals using ANSI telnet escape sequences. It was inspired by the ansiprt.c component of the University of Washington's excellent email package, PINE. However, since the author believed that ansiprt.c was released under "somewhat ridiculous terms", ansiprint has been completely re-written in C++, and includes a variety of new features.
CUPS is a standards-based printing system for Mac OS X and other Unix-like operating systems. It provides the System V and Berkeley command line interfaces, and uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) Server Message Block (SMB), and AppSocket (a.k.a. JetDirect) protocols are also supported with reduced functionality. CUPS adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer Description ("PPD") based printing options to support real world printing.
CUPS is a wonderful printing system that uses the emerging IPP protocol. The only drawback is that there is quite no free driver available to print with. CUPS-drivers address this issue by providing a generic printer driver using GNU GhostScript. Not many printers are supported to date, but all is in place to support as many printers as GS can. If GS supports your printer, then CUPS-drivers will support it as well. Help and feedback are welcomed.
Cyrprint converts postscript files generated by netscape (original pages must be in koi8 encoding). It can be used as a pass-through filter. It adds cyrillic fonts to the beginning of the file and substitutes font names in the original PS document. The substitution and addition of fonts can be controlled with styles.
Disc-cover provides an easy way to produce covers for audio CDs. It scans audio CDs and uses information from the CDDB or CDINDEX database to build a back and front cover for the CD. Output is in Latex, Dvi, PDF, Postscript, HTML, plain ASCII, or any other format suited for cdlabelgen.
Gutenprint (formerly Gimp-Print) is a collection of printer drivers for Unix/Linux that currently supports over 1400 printers. It emphasizes quality and flexibility, offering a wide variety of options to meet most printing needs. It includes a CUPS driver, an IJS-based Ghostscript driver, Foomatic data, an enhanced Print plugin for The GIMP, and other printer maintenance utilities. It can be used equally well for fast printing of text or critical printing of high quality graphics and photographs.
