save .ps files then send them to physical printer...
Posted on 2009-04-01
I'm writing a program in which I'm using PDFCreator to create a multi-page PDF. Part of the requirements for this program is that it also have the ability to print directly to a physical printer without creating a pdf.
Because of the application I'm doing, I'm using the initial run through a set of AutoCAD drawings to print out the .ps files using PDFCreator. I am then going back through and using those .ps files to create the various sets I need for each multi-page pdf without having to back through AutoCAD and print each set again.
My dilemma comes with the physical sets that need printed WITHOUT creating a pdf (so the print after saving setting from PDFCreator is not applicable).
Ok... so my question:
Does anyone know of a way that I can still use the .ps files that I'm creating and send those to a physical printer??
