Printing PostScript files to a line printer
Posted on 1998-09-09
OK, I'm not trying to do this personally, but I'm being badgered by someone who is... User has a PostScript file of what is actually a pretty simple report (straight text, no graphics) and they want to print it out, under VMS, to a line printer.
PostScript printer not available (unless anyone knows of a PS line printer :-). Likewise, a plain text version of this report is also not available (due to a combination of limitations in the way the report writing software exports data and the fact that the MS Generic Text driver doesn't support Landscape mode).
I know it's not trivial to convert PS to text, so I'm guessing that the most likely answer to this is going to be "can't do it". If someone *does* know how to, I'll bump up the points appropriately...
Alternatively, does anyone know of a generic text only Windows printer driver that supports Landscape? An answer to either question will solve the problem...
