Simple PDF Solution; "Gostscript" -> Developer Needed

<< < (14/14)

OS923:
In my experience it would require Java that is too sophisticated for OS 9.

I wouldn't recommend Qpdf either because when I link it as a static library or if I try to separate it from the console then I get weird bugs, which indicates that this software isn't kosher. I won't include this in OS 9.3.

I've only just seen this - thought I had notifications on for this thread. Anyway, I checked it out and it looks very useful, will have to look in more detail sometime.

My gut instinct is that this will be too difficult - I doubt a suitable JS runtime exists.

I do not intend to create any pressure! I just like to suggest to think about having the program ready when we celebrate the 10th aniversary of this thread. ;)

I actually dropped this after OS923 pointed out the Unicode stuff to me. I don't really know where the sources are now, but I can have a look.
Quite sure they are horrible :P
