Meeting: Viewing and Making PDFs on RISC OS

June 2006

Our June meeting saw us looking at the tools available to create and view Adobe’s Portable Document Format files on RISC OS. Steve Fryatt – who is the developer behind the PrintPDF utility – talked us through the free options such as PDF, GView and Ghostscript. Together these offer a fairly complete solution, but a commercial option exists in the form of RiScript and, following Steve, Chris Hughes discussed this and explained why we might want to use it.
