Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript
[Terry Burton]

Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript is an open source project that facilitates the printing of many barcode symbologies entirely within level 2 PostScript. Hence the process of generating a printed barcode representing a given input is performed entirely within the printer (or print system) where it is no longer the responsibility of your application or a library. Written and distributed by UK-based Terry Burton. Supported formats: EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-5 & EAN-2 (EAN/UPC add-ons), Code 128 (A, B & C), Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 (including ITF-14), Code 2 of 5, Codabar, MSI, Plessey, Postnet.

It works just as a print command on your system. Currently GB, Hz, zW, BIG5, CNS, JIS, EUC, Shift-JIS, KSC, UTF8, UTF7 and UTF16 formats are supported. With its full Unicode support, it should be able to print other language (e.g. Thai, Vietnames, Arabic as well)."

Font info and metrics modules

Johan Vromans' free Perl modules for working with type 1 fonts.

  • PostScript::Resources -- a module that fetches PostScript font related information from Unix PostScript Resource (.UPR) files.
  • PostScript::Font -- a module that returns info about PostScript font files (.PFB and .PFA files); TrueType fonts are handled using an external tool (see below).
    Info includes: font name, type, version, but also encoding vector and list of all glyphs.
  • PostScript::FontMetrics -- a module that analyses Adobe Font Metrics (.AFM) files;
    Info includes: font name, type, version, encoding vector and width, bounding box and kerning tables.
  • PostScript::PrinterMetrics -- a module that analyses Windows printer metrics (.PFM) files.
  • PostScript::TTFtoType42 -- a module that analyses TrueType fonts and wraps them in PostScript Type42 format.
  • PostScript::FontInfo -- a module that analyses Microsoft FontInfo (.INF) files;
  • fontsampler -- a tool to print sample pages of PostScript fonts.
  • font2pfa -- a tool to convert a font (.PFB file) to ASCII encoded format (.PFA file).
  • font2pfa -- and vice versa.
  • fontsampler makes sample pages of PostScript fonts.

The now defunct CurveSoft (Los Altos, CA) updated and debugged the t1utils package, a free package written in C, that allows various conversions between pfa, pfb and ascii versions of type 1 fonts. Extremely useful, even necessary, for anyone working with type 1 fonts. The original package was written by I. Lee Hetherington and fixed by Piet Tutelaers. We reproduce part of their "readme" file: t1disasm disassembles type-1 fonts in PFA or PFB format into a raw, human-readable text form. t1asm (re)assembles type-1 fonts in raw, human-readable form into either PFA or PFB format. t1ascii converts PFB files into PFA files. t1binary converts PFA files into PFB files. unpost extracts POST resources out of a Macintosh PostScript file (like a type-1 printer/ATM file) stored in MacBinary format or as a raw resource fork into PFA or PFB format. Note that this program does not need to run on a Macintosh. It allows Macintosh fonts to be used elsewhere. On July 30, Eric Hedman reported a bug: in t1asm.c 1.2, t1disasm.c 1.2 and t1binary.c 1.1 in t1utils 1.1a, please change static char line[LINESIZE] to static char line[LINESIZE+1] and recompile.

Lee Hetherington's beloved t1utils package. t1ascii changes PFB (binary) fonts into PFA (ASCII) format; t1binary goes the opposite direction. t1disasm translates PFBs or PFAs into a human-readable and -editable format; t1asm goes the opposite direction. Finally, t1unmac (formerly unpost) translates a Type 1 font in Mac format (either MacBinary or a raw resource fork) into either PFB or PFA format; and t1mac does the converse. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Anyone printing registered titles is sometimes asked to provide a book barcode for point-of-sale identification.

" Webify is a program which makes web-browsable trees of hypertext files and JPEG/GIF images from Postscript source files. It was motivated by the need to convert Powerpoint presentations to humane web form. Resolution and other parameters are adjustable, allowing most any postscript file (papers, manuals, books) to be automatically converted to page-browsable form. Webify is freely distributed in C source form, and runs on UNIX systems having Ghostscript installed with PPMRAW conversion along with the cjpeg or ppmtogif utilities (all available free). It can be used (on UNIX systems) to convert postscript files generated on Macs, PCs, and elsewhere. CLICK HERE to DOWNLOAD a large compressed tar file containing webify source. The size of the file stems from the postscript containing the above presentation; webify is a simple, single C program which invokes GhostScript to do most of the real work. By Steve Ward."
