    I found a systemlibrary ps2pdf.geo who is called from pscript.geo (Printerdriver)
    but how this works ?

    We worked on a print to pdf printer at Breadbox, just before Frank Fisher passed away. We never managed to finish the project. The first version was to incorporate the DOS Ghostscript converter, to later on maker a true Geos converter. Our first goal was to make it work, which it did. The result was just fine and editable in PDF editor. The file you are refering to is a system file from the package. There also was a spooler file, and I was working on an icon. You can get the same result using the DOS Ghostscript converter and the Geos Ghostscript PS driver, but it is some fizzling to make it work. You will be shelling out from Geos during the conversion. We just simplified the conversion in the first version.

    I use now print to GhostScript Software RIP Color (PostScript) in File and in Windows i open the PS-file with GsView and save to PDF.

    Maybe I use Geos differently (I have the NDO Version 2000 and run it in the DOSBOX Megabuild 5 ) .
    To make a PDF I print to file using either to the “HP Laser Jet 5 (post Script)” printer or the “IBM Color Jetprinter PS 4079 (Post Script)” printer (both are included in GEOS) and in Windows, I then use the Adobe Distiller in Windows to convert the RAW files, which are actually Post Script files, to PDF files.
    Perhaps this method is outdated.

    Sure, the Breadbox project was to create a solution for the DOSBox. This would operate in all DOSBoxes on all platforms.
