Is there any TIFF to PCL conversion programs?

Hello Peter,


tiff2ps <InputFilePath> | gs -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=<OutputFilePath>
-sDEVICE=ljet4 -sPAPERSIZE=<MyPaperSize>  - -c quit

I have tested it with tiff2ps from tiff-v3.4beta035/tools and Ghostsrcipt 4.00.

It is not fast, but it works.

The output format is PCL DELTA or (with -sDEVICE=laserjet PCL RAW). If it not run, look to the - between paper size and -c quit ( it is the flag for stdin or pipe).

I have written a converter from TIFF g3, g4, modg3 and raw which can create PCL DELTA and RAW. It is a little bit faster (real 0m20.70s versus real 0m1.54s on a HP 9000/720 ). It works on WINDOWS 95 and NT and some UNIX systems. But it is commercial.
