tos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


can anybody please give me a hint regarding the "RPT1:"-Port from RedMon (context Ghostscript) with a windows-printer.

I want to connect the RPT1: directly to a perlscript which first does some cleanings on on the (postscript-)datastream in a way as a filter and then forwards it to f.i. ps2pdf to create a pdf-output.

How can i achieve access to the port from within perl.

Thanks in advance and regards,


Is simplicity best or simply the easiest Martin L. Gore
