Creating pdf - files:
Posted on 2002-06-07
I'm thinking about a solution for creating pdf - files.
Here's some background information.
We are printing documents; invoices, delivery notes etc;
from our erp - system (dos - based).
We are using HP LaserJet printers, primary 4050.
Graphics are stored in non-volatile memory (Flash SIMMs) on the printers.
It's two files, one form.all and one print.all (HP Forms and Fonts Manager).
The erp - system then sends documents with macro calls included.
As I understand it the document is "put together" in the printer.
I would like to create a pdf - file that looks just like the printed document.
The document from the erp - system has to be processed with form.all and print.all.
We can print both pcl and postscript from our erp - system.
I've tried printing to a postscript - file
and then converting that to pdf with Adobe Distiller.
Works fine but I'm not getting the graphics in form.all and print.all.
