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).
PoDoFo is a C++ library to work with the PDF file format. It also includes also a few tools. It includes classes to parse a PDF file, modify its contents in memory, write the changes back to disk, and create new PDF files. The PoDoFo tools are simple tools built around the PoDoFo library. These tools are primarily examples of how to use the PoDoFo library in your own projects, although they offer useful features for working with PDF files.
printformPdf is a wrapper for the TCPDF class that allows you to documents from a PDF template by populating it with user data. It has features for printing "data grids" and repeating data on the page (which is useful for business cards, for example) and drawing bar codes, QR codes, polygons, and images from source picture files etc. Data priniting parameters (position, font name/size, color, rotation) can be saved in an XML configuration file.
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.
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.
