Projects / paps


paps is a text to PostScript converter that works through Pango. Its input is a UTF-8 encoded text file and it outputs vectorized PostScript that is quite compressed. It may be used for printing any complex script supported by Pango. paps supports landscape and portrait printing as well as multiple columns. paps includes libpaps, a library that facilitates creating PostScript output from UTF-8 encoded strings from other programs.
