   Summary: problem with fo:simple-page-master  or  fo:page-
sequence while creating PDF using FOP 0.20.5
   Product: Fop
   Version: 0.20.5
  Platform: PC
OS/Version: Windows NT
Status: NEW
  Severity: major
  Priority: P3
 Component: page-master/layout
AssignedTo: fop-dev@xml.apache.org
ReportedBy: [EMAIL PROTECTED]


I am generating pdf using Xslt and Formatting Objects. 

I am not getting any error but erlier it was showing the content with(0.20.4) 
border after the fop version upgradation border got disappeared?
why it is happening? Is there any change in the fop regarding this?

I have upgraded the FOP version from 0.20.4 to 0.20.5 and I am using jars Jar-
Files fop_020_5.jar and batik_fop_020_5.jar instead of Jar-Files fop17.jar, 
fop.jar, batik.jar

have a look at this used with 0.20.5 after upgradation

There's lots of documentation on our website. Start here:
http://xml.apache.org/fop/running.html

Also check our resources section which contains links to online
tutorials and articles:
http://xml.apache.org/fop/resources.html#documents-xslfo

If you're getting stuck somewhere please send questions to the fop-user
mailing list, not to this list which is dedicated to the development of
FOP. Thanks.

John,

Thank you for your message.

Yes, I realize the data in the byte array bt in tiff
does not belong to the standard formatting object.
That is why I got the error content is not allowed in
prolog. My understanding is I need to either convert
it into the formatting object using XSL or convert it
into XML. However, I am new to FOP and XML/XSL and do 
not know how to do that. If possible, we need to
convert the data format in memory,that means,
everything is done in memory, not save it as a file
first and process using FOP.  Would you please give me
your thought on it or you have a piece of codes for me
to share? I will greatly appreciate  it.
Firstly, your question really should have been posted to the user-list. The 
dev list is really for discussing internal work on FOP.

I believe your goal should be to create a servlet that serves Tiff images up. 
You can reference the Tiff images from an XSL-FO document using a HTTP URL, 
via the fo:external-graphic tag. FOP can then be called on the XSL-FO document 
to generate a PDF, and you can do this within another servlet if you need to.

May I also suggest that you get yourself a good book on XSL-FO and learn the 
basics before attempting to implement a solution based on XSL-FO.

urgent help needed using FOP

2004-04-01 Thread Jerry
Hi,

I am currently working on a
project which convert binary data in tiff format  into
PDF format. I refer to  the example(FopServlet.java)
and always got  error Error 500: Content is
not allowed in prolog. . I could not figure out what
the problem is.  I was stuch by this. Please help me.

Here is the peice of codes. Would you please take a
look and give me a suggestion. I will greatly
appreciate it.  

BTW, the binary data format from database which will
be displayed on the web is in tiff format, not a
formatting object. If it can be displayed directly on
the web in pdf format, it is not necessary to convert
it into pdf first.

thanks,

Jerry

It is not clear from your example whether your data is usable by
FOP.

FOP is designed to process XML files, specifically XSL-FO or
Formatting objects. 

You state on your message and in comments that the binary data is
in a TIFF format. You move this data around, eventualy passing it
to the FOP Driver object. I don't think this is at all reasonable
as a TIFF object is definitely not going to be accepted by the SAX
parser used in FOP.

You need to read the FOP examples again.

 Jerry

Re: Using FOP / trying to embed FOP

2003-01-03 Thread Jeremias Maerki
Hi Kevin

This is probably a classpath problem (NoClassDefFoundError). You've got
to make sure that fop.jar (as well as batik and friends) are on your
classpath. Example:

java -cp fop.jar;batik.jar;other-jars... embed simple.fo testembed.pdf

Look at fop.bat as another example.

Don't try to compile FOP from the command line using javac. Use the Ant
build script instead and then use the generated fop.jar in your
application.

Another comment further down...

Please be so kind as to ask this sort of question on the fop-user
mailing list next time. Thanks and good luck!

How can I generate editable reports using FOP

It depends on what you mean with editable. You can edit
any PDF file with certain tools.
If you want to insert input fields into the result, this
is something which FOP can't do, and which XSLFO is not
exactly designed for.
SOmeone published about an extension to FOP for inserting
roughly raw PDF instructions into the result, which can be
used to porduce input fields, but you should have read and
understand the PDF spec in order to use this. Search the
list archive if you are interested.

 It is possible to apply security features to PDF output like making pdf
 output read-only
 and disabling the copy operation on the output etc..

This is not build-in into FOP, but you can postprocess
the generated PDF:

RE: Unable to generate PDF file from EJB using FOP

2002-07-11 Thread Amit Rangari

I have written a simple program to translate the XML data to PDF format
when I run this program as a standalone application it works fine; it
generates the appropriate PDF file. Please find attached Translate.java
file.

 The problem is when I call the method to convert XML to PDF from EJB
(Stateless) it does not render at all; in fact it doesn't write anything
to the ByteArrayOutputStream which is set as a outputStream for the
Driver.

- Are you using IEx as a client? Do you use a URL ending
   in .pdf to access the PDF?

Yes I am planning to do so but the problem is that the PDF itself is not
getting created.

- Have you used a command line client like wget to retrieve
   the PDF? Do you get an error? Do you get an empty
   or corrupted PDF?

Yes I do get a Report1.pdf on the disk but it is empty.

- is there anything interesting in the logs of the EJB container?

no

- Have you tried the servlet example distributed with FOP?
   Do you have prolems there alos?

Yes I tried the FOPServlet example that also doen't work

Unable to generate PDF file from EJB using FOP

2002-07-10 Thread Amit Rangari


I have written a simple class which takes XML and XSL and translate it
into PDF using FOP (this works fine when run it as a standalone
application) but when I embed this program/logic in a stateless EJB it
doesn't render the content to the output stream. 

I have checked out the class path also, I am using the same setEnv.bat
file to set the environment for running both standalone program as well
as weblogic application server.

Please help me

   I will be having FO templates, that specify the style of the report. 
Let's say the template is like:

?xml version=1.0 encoding=utf-8?

There will be templates like above where the hashpart(###)

the hole area where the programs fill the data. The data will be got
from
the database and the client program supplies the server with the data
and
the sever program takes the data and for every write call the client
program
says, the server creates a new fo:block element and places the data
supplied in the hash portion. The client proceeds in this fashion. 
   The client program may supply large amount of records, can be
around 15,000 records also. So, it is not advisable to make the user
wait
till all the data is supplied and the entire FO constructed. There is an
assumption made now, say we can show 40 records per page. The client
supplies 40 records to the sever, which renders the page using FOP API.
But,
the problem comes if the data supplied will not fit in the single line.
If
the data spans more than 1 line, then the assumption becomes incorrect
and
the remnant portion of the data ( a small chunk, could be one or two
lines)
comes in the second page. This is not good. 
There actually will be number of templates and client filling
out
the templates. So, I'm trying to find a solution where in which at any
point
of time client should be able to know that
 Still how many lines of display remain?. With that
the
client can hold until the server gives it a ready signal again.

I hope I'm clear now... I'm not finding how to solve the above
problem... I think this type of viewing is common in business
applications...
For now, it is assumed that the page size is 8.5in * 11in

Problem printing using FOP 0.20.3

2002-06-13 Thread Craig . Malton

Hello,

   I'm having a problem I can't figure out, hoping someone has done
this before.  I have a FOP program to do some printing from a Java.  I
created a Java Swing Applet that uses FOP to do the printing.  I am using
code out of FOP 0.20.3 distribution that is in org.apache.fop.apps.  I used
the same code in PrintStarter to do the printing.  The printing works fine
(the page looks as I would expect) but the really weird thing is that the
output from the print is going to the manual feed on my printer instead of
to the normal output bin.  What this means is each time I print I have to
walk over to the printer and manually feed in the pages to be
printed...obviously not a good solution :)  The same problem occurs when I
use the fop.bat program to do the printing instead of my program.  Has
anyone encountered anything like this before?  Any solutions would be
greatly appreciated.

Also I've tried doing this to multiple printers from multiple desktops.
The strange thing is that the text I'm printing prints fine, just wants to
go through the manual feed.  If I use Java print from a problem that
doesn't use the AWTRenderer then it goes to the correct feed.

Thanks,

Craig Malton

Can you give me some hints, or can you put me in touch with someone who has 
successfully produced PDFs from .xml files in xmlspy? I have done this quite

   + I'm a tech writer (novice in XML and no Java knowledge whatsoever)

Is that XMLSpy that only works with Win2k? FOP most definitely is NOT
limited to Win2k.

FOP should work on any platform with full JDK 1.2+ and AWT support.

No - it is an xmlspy limitation. To me, it appears that they do not support
the hook into the java vm with anything but win2k.

I too am running NT. FOP from the command line works fine. Cannot call it

Using Fop Within An Application

2002-02-15 Thread Jim Urban

I am trying to use FOP within my application to process and display (in AWT
mode) a FO I create by processing records from a database.  I get to the
point where I have a String object containing the FO but I can't seem to get
FOP to display its AWT window.  Could someone please pass along some source
code that shows how to do this?  I looked at the doc and the example is
incomplete:

Driver driver = new Driver();
driver.setRenderer(new org.apache.fop.render.awt.AWTRenderer(translator));
driver.render(parser, fileInputSource(args[0]));

What is translator?  The doc I have not only doesn't show how to create
one, its written in German!
What is parser?  What parser do I use?  How do I create one?

Thanks for the help,

You need to be a bit more specific. Do you need the letters to appear the right way up 
but
immediately below one another or should the letters be on their side. If the latter 
should they go
down the page or up the page?

I have had this working fine by using SVG text. (I was using it for the axes of an SVG

but this was six months ago.

I remember looking into this and seeing that the relevant XSL:FO functionality wasn't

 Fop is used to format and render xsl fo into an output, eg. pdf.
 Batik is used to rasterize an svg document into and output, eg. png, jpg

 If you have an svg file that you want to convert into a pdf document then
 you use the batik rasterizer to render to the mime type for pdf

FOP did not support pluggable loggers properly.
There needs to be some logging implementation and having our own, when
there are others around, is not the best thing.

The important things for logging are
- handle threads
- inversion of control

 I was able to use FOP without including jimi.jar, but batik is
 required even though I don't use SVG.  Why is that?  Can't it be
 decoupled somehow and only loaded when SVG is used?

As I have said before, yes it can be decoupled. This will require the user
agent to be implemented and a few other areas to be improved.
The best way to get this done is to help out.
There are a large number of things that need to be done and it seems a
large number of people who want them done. Helping out is a good way to get

 Thanks. I meanwhile figured it out that i could use
 SOMEURLSTRING=file:+xslFileName
 
 Some other notes on FOP 0.20.2 in general and using in in an IBM
 WebSphere Server in particular (including problems actually caused
 by Batik):
 - IBM has their own Logging mechanism (though it's primitive). Using
   LogKit is of no real use for me, it just forces me to put logkit.jar
   in the classpath which noticable increases startup time
   (invconvenient in development only, but i *am* developing...). Could
   you use an lightweight interface which belongs to a FOP package, and
   an default implementation which dispates to an LogKit logger?
   Something like the ErrorListener class in JAXP. I could then provide
   my own implementation to the interface without having to pull in the
   whole LogKit. This would also make for an much better separation of
   the libraries, there would be just one class in FOP which uses
   LogKit stuff in the delegation and setup routines.
 - Something similar goes for the avalon framework. I thought i could
   avoid putting the jar in the classpath by not using the Driver class,
   but it still goes in by a remarkably twisted way: somewhere during
   SVG rendering in Batik a batik.bridge.BridgeContext is created, which
   quite unnecessarily creates a (Batik) DocumentLoader (there is no
   document because FOP gets the XML already as SAX event stream), which
   in turn gets a XML Parser name from the SVGUserAgent supplied by FOP
   which gets it from the fop.apps.Driver class. While the primary fault
   is in Batik which should create stuff more lazily (you may forward
   this complaint!), i don't think the fop.apps.Driver should act both
   as central repository for configuration settings and be an Avalon

FOP in WebSphere and some general notes (Was: Re: Using FOP in Servlet)

Karen Lease wrote:
 Configuration.put(baseDir, SOMEURLSTRING);

Thanks. I meanwhile figured it out that i could use
SOMEURLSTRING=file:+xslFileName

Some other notes on FOP 0.20.2 in general and using in in an IBM
WebSphere Server in particular (including problems actually caused
by Batik):
- IBM has their own Logging mechanism (though it's primitive). Using
  LogKit is of no real use for me, it just forces me to put logkit.jar
  in the classpath which noticable increases startup time
  (invconvenient in development only, but i *am* developing...). Could
  you use an lightweight interface which belongs to a FOP package, and
  an default implementation which dispates to an LogKit logger?
  Something like the ErrorListener class in JAXP. I could then provide
  my own implementation to the interface without having to pull in the
  whole LogKit. This would also make for an much better separation of
  the libraries, there would be just one class in FOP which uses
  LogKit stuff in the delegation and setup routines.
- Something similar goes for the avalon framework. I thought i could
  avoid putting the jar in the classpath by not using the Driver class,
  but it still goes in by a remarkably twisted way: somewhere during
  SVG rendering in Batik a batik.bridge.BridgeContext is created, which
  quite unnecessarily creates a (Batik) DocumentLoader (there is no
  document because FOP gets the XML already as SAX event stream), which
  in turn gets a XML Parser name from the SVGUserAgent supplied by FOP
  which gets it from the fop.apps.Driver class. While the primary fault
  is in Batik which should create stuff more lazily (you may forward
  this complaint!), i don't think the fop.apps.Driver should act both
  as central repository for configuration settings and be an Avalon
  loggable at the same time. In fact i'd like to have an interface to
  FOP which resembles slightly more the XSLT TransformerFactory/
  Transformer interfaces, with setting parameters using a Parameters
  object like Java Mail mixed in. The framework stuff including setting
  up a LogKit logger and and all that could be build around that. If
  this catches your curiosity, ask me to write up a more complete

  table is null. I believe this also happens always if the namespace

Using FOP in Servlet

2001-10-04 Thread Joerg Pietschmann

Hello,
i use FOP in a servlet together with the Saxon XSL processor.
I implemented the communication between the processors as
a SAX event stream. The following code snippet was developed
with FOP 0.20.1, i think with 0.20.2 i could use the Driver
again but i don't want to bother with this yet.

  Transformer transformer=getTransformer(xslFile);
  // setup FOP
  org.apache.fop.system.BufferManager bufferManager
=new org.apache.fop.system.BufferManager();
  org.apache.fop.fo.FOTreeBuilder treeBuilder
=new org.apache.fop.fo.FOTreeBuilder();
  treeBuilder.setBufferManager(bufferManager);
  org.apache.fop.fo.ElementMapping mapping;
  mapping=(org.apache.fop.fo.ElementMapping)Class.forName(
   org.apache.fop.fo.StandardElementMapping).newInstance();
  mapping.addToBuilder(treeBuilder);
   [ more mapping code lifted from Driver.java snipped ]
  org.apache.fop.apps.StreamRenderer streamRenderer
 = new org.apache.fop.apps.StreamRenderer(out,
  new org.apache.fop.render.pdf.PDFRenderer());
  treeBuilder.setStreamRenderer(streamRenderer);
   [ setting up log snipped - a nightmare! ]
  // the transformer gets its input data wia a customized XMLReader
  // from the servlet parameters
  transformer.transform(new SAXSource(new DocXMLReader(),
  new DocServletParameterInputSource(req)),
new SAXResult(treeBuilder));

  byte[] content = out.toByteArray();
  res.setContentType(application/pdf);
  res.setContentLength(content.length);
  res.getOutputStream().write(content);
  res.getOutputStream().flush();

The problem i want help about is the exception

The SVG is defined in the XSL file. How do i set the base URL for

a real file name (for example the name of the XSL file) or is it
sufficient to use ?

Re: Using FOP in Servlet

2001-10-04 Thread Karen Lease

Joerg,

I think the easiest way to do this is something like this (taken from
the Fop task in org/apache/fop/tools/anttasks/Fop.java)
 Configuration.put(baseDir, SOMEURLSTRING);
You may want to do the whole configuration initialization process anyway
just to get things like compression and fonts. When running FOP from the
command line, most of the configuration work happens in the Options
class (org.apache.fop.apps), so you might want to look at that too.

Karen Lease

Concurrency Problem with mutiple pages being generated when using fop

2001-09-12 Thread Gagan Bhalla

I am facing a similar problem to what was described in
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fop-devm=100015708206260w=2
and
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fop-devm=100019510024180w=2

Except, in my case, fop starts producing too many pages because of the size
of pictures being used, in addition to the table headers described in the
above link. The above link explains this to be a problem in Cocoon's
org.apache.cocoon.formatter.FO2PDFFormatter.format() method. I have looked
at the Cocoon project pages and could not find a fix for this problem. I
have tried getting all pics being used to be less than the size of 1/4 page
and I still get the concurrency problem. Earlier, I was getting the dreaded
OME exception, but that got fixed after applying a patch that we found on
the FAQ's at http://www.owal.co.uk:8090 (which seems to be down for the last
couple of days). I am using fop 0.18 with the memory patch and am running
JDK1.2.2 with -ms128m -mx256m as the options. In the above links, it is
mentioned that this problem of multiple pages being generated is not fixed
even when using fop0.20, therefore I did'nt want to upgrade.  I have tried
increasing the memory option when starting the JVM but that does'nt make
much difference either.

 I don't think the patch for the OME fixes the problem with too many pages
being generated. Is there a patch available to fix that? Thanks.

Using FOP 0.19-CVS to create PDF

2001-08-08 Thread Jeff Rancier

Hello All.

I downloaded the 1.42 XSL stylesheets for DocBook in an attempt to generate
a PDF from my DocBook XML.  The version of the DocBook stylesheets with
XAE-1.0beta6 appears to be 1.18.  The version of the DocBook DTD which my
book was created appears to be V4.1.2.  I am attempting to create the PDF
directly from my DocBook (book) XML, using the FOP-0.19-CVS using the
fo/docbook.xsl stylesheet.  I am still getting errors.

Can anyone tell me if I need to get a different version of the DTD, or what
my problem might be?

Re: Using FOP 0.19-CVS to create PDF

2001-08-08 Thread Don Wellington

Hi Jeff-

I am working on almost the same software.  I am using
docbook-xsl 1.41.  I found the easiest way to figure
out where a problem is occuring is to just start
erasing parts of my document from the bottom up until
the problem goes away.  Then, you will eventually be
able to figure out which element is generating the
fo:inline that is initiating your problem.

Just so you know a couple of problems I have run into:

1) A graphic as the first element in a list-item-body
can cause a page break which leaves the
list-item-label on the previous page.  I am trying to
figure out how to  prevent this in the FOP code.

2) Graphics that are larger than a page will send FOP
into an infinite loop.

3) Pagination accross multiple page sequences doesn't
work according to the xsl:fo spec.  Something else I
want to look into fixing in FOP.

4) Page number sitation in the tabel of contents are
not appearing.  I don't know whether this is a
docbook-xsl or FOP problem.  I also don't like the
justification in the tabel of contents, so I changed
justify=start.

I will keep you informed as I find mor things.

Hi Arved-

It is with FOP-0.19 not the latest CVS.  I am stuck
behind a firewall, so CVS is not really an option.

If you have multiple fo:page-sequences in a document
with either no intial-page-number attribute set, or
initial-page-number set to auto.  The first page of
each page sequence starts at 1.  But, the spec says
that the initial number should be one greater than the
last number of the preceding page-sequence.

I am using docbook-xsl 1.41 on a docbook book with
multiple chapters.  This stylesheet creates a
different page-sequence for each chapter.

See the template for chapter below.  It has an xsl:if
to reset the page numbering to 1 at the first chapter.
 I tried FOP both with and without that xsl:if to make
sure the stylesheet wasn't setting the initial page to
1.

xsl:template match=chapter
  xsl:variable name=id
xsl:call-template name=object.id/
  /xsl:variable
  xsl:variable name=master-name
xsl:call-template name=select.pagemaster/
  /xsl:variable

  fo:page-sequence id={$id}
hyphenate={$hyphenate}
master-name={$master-name}
xsl:attribute name=language
  xsl:call-template name=l10n.language/
/xsl:attribute
xsl:if test=not(preceding::chapter)
  xsl:attribute name=initial-page-number
  1/xsl:attribute
/xsl:if
xsl:if test=$double.sided != 0
  xsl:attribute
name=force-page-countend-on-even/xsl:attribute
/xsl:if

xsl:apply-templates select=.

RE: XHTML to PDF using FOP????

2001-07-11 Thread Michiel Verhoef

Hi,

First, there is a weird d element in your last table. I'm no XHTML expert
but it is not HTML AFAIK.

Second, some of the tr are missing td elements. A tr needs a td (at
least, in HTML it does)
so my guess is that your XHTML is not valid HTML. Any xsl that converts
valid HTML to say, fo will give
errors or at least not the desired result..

HTH,

Michiel

Drawing lines in PDF using FOP

2001-07-04 Thread Ricardo Coutinho

Hi all,

I have the requirement to draw shapes/lines (horizontal, vertical, diagonal)
based on x/y coordinates passed on to me. Is this possible?

I checked the xslfoRef.pdf that comes with FOP and there was no indication
that this is possible. I have also searched the net and came up with no
references/examples.

If someone has any ideas/examples, I would be grateful if you would pass
them on to me.

Re: Memory leaks when using FOP 0.19.0 many times

2001-06-29 Thread Chetan Vig

Hi Arved,

Regarding the same subject. I got the latest patch from Seshadariand it works
great (with FOP 0.19)...however, the problem is every time when u run the driver
(either from an application or a servlet) it writes to a temp/serilaized
filethis makes the process single threaded...If one tries to run multiple
threads at the same time it bombs the server. As a result, I am not able to use
this stuff yet for my users.

We will have to come up with some kind of solution for that.

Thanks,

If you can print your pdf manually from reader then you should be able to

Maybe you choose wrong driver when you run reader.

 To use the PCLRenderer you just need to tell the Driver to use the
 PCLRenderer either by passing the symbolic constant for this or by passing
 an instance of the PCLRenderer class. For example:

 fopDriver.setRenderer(Driver.RENDER_PCL);
 or
 fopDriver.setRenderer(new PCLRenderer());

 If you are invoking FOP from the command line then you can use the -pcl
 switch to invoke the PCL Renderer.

 I am not sure what was in the various ZIP files. I would have thought that
 everything should be in there.

Re: Printing PDF using FOP...

2001-06-15 Thread Hitesh Bagchi

I downloaded a fresh set of code from the fop cvs and did find the PCLRenderer
and the other latest source code. But as far I could make out PCLRenderer does
not print to a printer instead it prints to a file in pcl format. Now in case of
pcl as well I do have to send the output to the printer. So my previous problem
remains.
I am actually not getting how can I send the output to the printer. I think if
somebody can
provide with a code fragment then it would be of great help.

Thanks,
Hitesh

 To use the PCLRenderer you just need to tell the Driver to use the
 PCLRenderer either by passing the symbolic constant for this or by passing
 an instance of the PCLRenderer class. For example:

 fopDriver.setRenderer(Driver.RENDER_PCL);
 or
 fopDriver.setRenderer(new PCLRenderer());

 If you are invoking FOP from the command line then you can use the -pcl
 switch to invoke the PCL Renderer.

 I am not sure what was in the various ZIP files. I would have thought that
 everything should be in there.

 I downloaded the 0.18 version of FOP (Fop-0.18.1-DEV-src.zip).
 In it I did find the PCLRenderer class but found no example explaining how
 to
 use it.
 Also the code I found in the src directory do not contain the
 org.apache.fop.render.pcl package and all the new packages of 0.18 although
 the
 javadocs has them. Did I downloaded the wrong zip file.?
 Can somebody provide me with a code snippet as to how to use PCLRenderer.

You can use the Acrobat reader to send a pdf file directly to your printer.

Try building a command string using the information at
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fop-devm=9865403484w=2.

Execute the command using Runtime.exec().

RE: Printing PDF using FOP...

2001-06-15 Thread Art Welch

Actually the output goes to an output stream. Unfortunately sending the
output stream is a little platform dependent. On Windows 2000 I just open an
OutputStream to the desired printer. Under Unix I exec an lp command and
get the output stream for that:

proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(lp -d + output +  -o -dp -);
out = proc.getOutputStream();

Similar things can be done at the command line, but I do not remember the
syntax off hand. For windows I think that specifying an URL for the printer
works. I do not remember exactly how I got the command line to print
directly under Unix - maybe specifying stdout for the file name and then
piping the output to lp. I do not use the command line much. For my
application FOP is invoked by a servlet.

HTH,
Art

Push some raw postscript into it ... if it prints it out nice you have a
Postscript printer.

Next, try PCL ... if it prints it you have a PCL printer.  My money's on
postscript though.
