Hoping someone might have small hints for me on this one.
Got a Postscript that needs to be converted on the fly (ColdFusion
to PDF and streamed back to the client.
The Streaming etc is all good.
What we do have working is using Ghostscript in a round about way.
using gs in BATCH mode. convert the PS to PDF and the open stream and
The problem is that GS is pixelating the FONT's in the PDF created.
It prints okay, just looks horrible.
We have played with a few other libraries(looked at, PDFLib) but most
don't convert from
PS to PDF's.
I saw the post a few days back obout Appending PDF's to PDF's. I
have taken a look at Panda, but it too doesn't seem to convert, only
Just wondering if anyone had any pointers ? (to either fix my font
in view mode, or know of a library that will do the trick)
