DOWNLOAD: jpeg_to_turbo

I've written a program jpeg_to_turbo, which makes use of jpeg.library and the Turboprint API to enable jpeg's to be printed via Turboprint 3,4,5,6,7. This gives a method for people to print docs who have Turboprint 3,4,5,6. Currently it only accepts 24 bit rgb jpegs as input, such jpegs are produced by -sDEVICE=jpeg

So to print a pdf doc by this method you would do:

gs_000 -sDEVICE=jpeg -dJPEGQ=100 -sOutputFile=t:xyz%d.jpeg xyz.pdf

Then to print eg the first page:

jpeg_to_turbo t:xyz1.jpeg

My turboprint testers tell me it functions! I've never seen it in action myself!

Eventually I shall develop it further, a lot of improvements are possible by making fuller use of the jpeg.library + Turboprint API facilities.

Meanwhile work continues on getting -sDEVICE=turboprint to function.
