RE: CREATE FILE .PDF WITH CLIPPER 5.3

Well, for me, I have a clipper application that generates output files in HP-PCL/GL format and to turn these into a PDF file is pretty straight forward.

Firstly you need a package such as:

Then just run it as a command line option from within your application:

CODE

run pcl2pdf32 temp\mypcl.pcl temp\mypdf.pdf

RE: CREATE FILE .PDF WITH CLIPPER 5.3

Hi All,

The usual way to create a pdf is to print to a printer driver that will make one for you. You will need to change your print routine to print to a Windows printer, then select the pdf driver.

Vouch32 and PageScript can print to Windows printers, but you will need to change the printout routines.

Hope that helps.
