I am trying to create a pdf file using Print Composer in batch mode. After looking through some older threads I was able to use:
epic.exe -c "print" test.sgm (this results in a pdf output but prompts the user for the filename)
epic.exe -c "print printer='Adobe PDF' file=test.ps" test.sgm (this suppresses the filename prompt, but outputs postcript)
Is there a way to use the second method (suppressing user input) but output directly to pdf (bypassing the need to use distiller)?
Thanks in advance!
I am trying to use batch mode to compose XML files using XSL-FO style sheets on PE.
Here is the line I have tried but nothing happens.
C:\ArbortextPE\bin\editor.exe -E3w -newinstance -c "print composed allpasses force printer='Adobe PDF' file=R00001.pdf stylesheet='e3:xslfo-main-v1_9.xsl" R00001.xml
C:\ArbortextPE\bin\editor.exe E3w -newinstance -c "print composed allpasses force printer='Adobe PDF' file=R00001.ps stylesheet='e3:xslfo-main-v1_9.xsl'" R00001.xml
I don't get a .ps or pdf.
This works when I am using fosi instead of XSL-FO on versin 5.3, but will not work on 5.4. Any suggestions.
Thank you Clay. Using the PEI was ideal.
We will e ableto create PDFs of our files unattended. Thanks again.
