Hi all, that's the way how we solved such a problem, may be it's also usable for you: if you're working on a windows platform you can do following: -make a batch job to print a postcript-file into a "IN" folder, here C:\Temp\In -set Acrobat-Distiller to look at this folder C:\Temp -Acrobat will take care of the "IN" folder in C:\Temp -whenever you will print to this folder "C:\Temp\In\*.ps" , Acrobat will convert the postscript file "docname.ps" to "docname.pdf" automatically and writes it to the folder "C:\Temp\Out"
the acl code you'll need is just simple: $NAME = "Hello" $FILENAME = 'C:\\Temp\\In\\' . $NAME . '.ps' print composed wait file=$FILENAME
best regards Roland
