HTMLDOC converts HTML files and Web pages into indexed HTML, PostScript, and PDF files suitable for online viewing and printing. It can be used as a standalone GUI application, in a batch document processing environment, as a Web-based report generation application, or in embedded environments to support printing of HTML content. It runs on all Unix platforms as well as Mac OS X and Windows 2000 and higher.
The rlpr package makes it possible (or at the very least, easier) to print files on remote sites to your local printer. It includes BSD-compatible replacements for `lpr', `lpq', and `lprm', whose functionality is a superset of their BSD counterparts. In other words, with the rlpr package, you can do everything you could do with the BSD printing commands, and more. The programs are all smaller, cleaner, and more portable than their BSD equivalents, and supported on just about any POSIX.1 system.
txt2pdf PRO is a very flexible and powerfu program that converts files from text to PDF format. It extends txt2pdf with features such as the ability to add form feeds, to skip the first form feed, to set the top and left margins, to use images (JPEGs) in the background, and to create compressed PDFs.
The X Printing Panel (XPP) is a tool for choosing the desired printer out of a list of all printers available under CUPS and for setting printer options by an easy-to-use GUI. One simply calls the program instead of the usual utilities (lpr or lp) at the command line or out of applications.
Foomatic is the printer/driver database of Linuxprinting.org. The XML-based system integrates free software printer drivers with all common spoolers (CUPS, LPRng, LPD, GNUlpr, PPR, PDQ, CPS, etc.) in UNIX. It generates Adobe-compliant PPD files which, together with the foomatic-rip filter script, allow easy setup of print queues with access to all driver options. Foomatic ships with every major Linux distro and its Web site is used as a reference by vendors. It is an up-to-date and distribution-independent repository of printer and driver data, scripts, and utilities, accompanied by the wealth of knowledge, tips and tricks, solutions, and enlightenment provided by its newsgroups.
CreEPS is a collection of C++ classes that provide an easy-to-use interface for generating vector plots from within code. The drawings are stored as Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files. It features all basic drawing elements, user-configurable fill types, and printf-style text output. Extensive documentation with many examples is included.
