PostScript® and Printer-related TechnicalCounselSM Consulting Services Examples
For Southwest Bell, a Regional Bell Operating Company (RBOC), we implemented forms and consulted on the development of applications programs to demand print completed expense reimbursement requests for signature. This project involved the conversion of PostScript files designed using word processing software, design and implementation of custom written PostScript programs, and the design of interfaces to permit applications programs written in COBOL to generate the variable data for inclusion in the demand-printed forms.
With client permission, this work was the subject of “PostScript for Custom Forms” (presented at the Spring 1995 US DECUS Symposium) and “PostScript for Applications Programming” (presented at the 1994 DECUS Canada Symposium, and the Spring 1993 US DECUS Symposium).
For a client in the financial services industry, we have consulted on the design, implementation, and enhancement of an applications system which generates in excess of 1 million pages of PostScript output per month.
For several clients, we have converted artwork produced by a variety of desktop design, drawing, and publishing packages into PostScript macros which can be downloaded into a printer and referenced easily from an output stream generated by applications programs.
For several clients in a range of industries, we have consulted on techniques for improving the performance of PostScript jobs, both in terms of raw size (the number of bits which must be transferred from the host computer to the printer), and coding style to improve the speed of processing within the printer.
We have assisted several clients with the design, implementation, and debugging of PostScript emitting back ends for applications. These projects typically involve the total design and implementation of the output back-end, the design of the interfaces between the applications program itself and the forms-producing back-end, and the modular design of the PostScript output stream to produce different output requirements.
Our founder, Robert Gezelter, has spoken on PostScript, HP PCL, and other related topics both on a national level within the United States and internationally in France, Switzerland, Canada, and Turkey.
