OK, if you can't find what you want, you lower your sights and try again.
It appears nobody has a postscript interpreter that will drive a Versatec
7444 plotter directly. OK, I can do the back end.
Does anyone know of a postscript interpreter (commercial is OK, I don't
think there are any free ones) that can produce a raw bitmap, or something
similar that I can decode? It must have the following attributes:
1) Must be able to handle a 44" by 86" by 400dpi raster image.
2) Must do "pro" quality text (i.e. make full use of font hinting).
I prefer something that runs on VAX/VMS, but will consider all other
I know about ghostscript, but it doesn't do font hints and is thus not
good enough. I know about CAI, and am talking to them. I also know about
NeWSPrint on a Sun, and am talking to them also. I'd like to be able
to evaluate other alternatives as well. Also, I'd really like to find a
VAX/VMS solution, as it would save me having to deal with multiple OS's,
multiple networking technologies, and all those other hassles that run up
the price and make configuring it non-trivial.
