[NTO] PDF files for free
- *This message was transferred with a trial version of CommuniGate(tm) Pro*
I suppose many of you like to have PDF files in their sites, but Adobe
Distiller (the official program to write them) is almost expensive.
There is a way to create PDF files for free, using a converted Linux
utility called GhostScript.
Here is how to do:
- install drivers for a color postscript printer like Textronic Phaser III
(you don't need to buy it!) redirecting output to FILE instead of LPT1
- install GhostScript and related programs (see the site)
- from any program (even graphic ones!) make a print using PS printer, and
rename the output as .ps (postscript file)
- open the .ps file with GhostScript and export as PDF
Oh, remember that Unix/Linux users are able to see directly .ps files, so,
if your site has a multi-platform target, you can use them, too!

want help, but do not force it on me if I do not want it.
Bye for now,
