PSWRAP(1) UNIX Programmer's Manual PSWRAP(1)
pswrap - creates C procedures from segments of PostScript language code
pswrap [ -apr ] [ -o outputCfile ] [ -h outputHfile ] [ -s maxstring ] inputfile
pswrap reads input from inputfile and creates C-callable procedures, known as wraps, that send PostScript language code to the PostScript interpreter. inputfile contains seg- ments of PostScript language code wrapped with a C-like pro- cedure syntax. Wraps are the most efficient way for an application to com- municate with the PostScript interpreter. For complete docu- mentation of pswrap and the language it accepts, see "pswrap Reference Manual" in Programming the Display PostScript Sys- tem with X.
inputfile A file that contains one or more wrap definitions. pswrap transforms the definitions in inputfile into C procedures. If no input file is specified, the standard input (which can be redirected from a file or pipe) is used. The input file can include text other than wrap definitions. pswrap converts wrap definitions to C pro- cedures and passes the other text through unchanged. Therefore, it is possible to intersperse C-language source code with wrap definitions in the input file. Note: Although C code is allowed in a pswrap input file, it is not allowed within a wrap body. In particu- lar, no CPP macros (for example, #define) are allowed inside a wrap. -a Generates ANSI C procedure prototypes for procedure definitions in outputCfile and, optionally, outputH- file. The -a option allows compilers that recognize the ANSI C standard to do more complete type checking of parameters. The -a option also causes pswrap to gen- erate const declarations. Note: ANSI C procedure prototype syntax is not recog- nized by most non-ANSI C compilers, including many com- pilers based on the Portable C Compiler. Use the -a option only in conjunction with a compiler that con- forms to the ANSI C Standard.
PSWRAP(1) UNIX Programmer's Manual PSWRAP(1) -h outputHFile Generates a header file that contains extern declara- tions for non-static wraps. This file can be used in #include statements in modules that use wraps. If the -a option is specified, the declarations in the header file are ANSI C procedure prototypes. If the -h option is omitted, a header file is not produced. -o outputCFile Specifies the file to which the generated wraps and passed-through text are written. If omitted, the stan- dard output is used. If the -a option is also speci- fied, the procedure definitions generated by pswrap are in ANSI C procedure prototype syntax. -p Specifies that strings passed by wraps are padded so that each data object begins on a long-word (4-byte) boundary. This option allows wraps to run on architec- tures that restrict data alignment to 4-byte boundaries and improves performance on some other architectures. -r Generates reentrant code for wraps shared by more than one process (as in shared libraries). Reentrant code can be called recursively or by more than one thread. The -r option causes pswrap to generate extra code, so use it only when necessary. -s maxstring Sets the maximum allowable length of a PostScript string object or hexadecimal string object in the wrap body input. A syntax error is reported if a string is not terminated with ) or > within maxstring characters. maxstring cannot be set lower than 80; the default is 200.
