Printing with Rebol.

 [1/2] from: gschwarz:netconnect:au at: 13-Mar-2003 12:24

On this list, many have asked the question "Can Rebol print to a printer?"
>From the Rebol web site;
Applications run faster with less bandwidth, and our dialect-based distributed computing model rebels against the idea that distributed applications must be built on layers of complex and expensive software. With "faster with less bandwidth" in mind, the file to be printed should be small until it needs to be rendered. One way is send a small HTML file across a network to the computer with the printer attached. Software on the computer with the printer takes the HTML and render the file into postscript for the printer. This way bandwidth needs are reduced by a large amount. Roger and I have made a program that can do the above. The basic version is free to use. Please try it out and give us feedback. Regards, Greg Schwarz.

I have not had any feedback as yet. I hope the people who have download the software are still with us. One use is using this software is to add a "Print" function to the smallest paint program (paint.r) Paint save the picture to the "pics" folder in the "printing" folder, then saves a html file in the printing folder with tag. <IMG SRC="pics/picture.png"> Regards, Greg
