PS as in PostScript?

Seems you would have a need or an application (or at least an idea of one) before embarking on such a project. As far as I know, those are two different animals with two different purposes.

What motivated you?

If it was just an exercise, and you like exercises, and know PostScript, here's a cool one I don't think anyone has taken up -- http://code.v.igoro.us/archives/8-Pr...Generator.html. I'd actually like to see the code for that if someone manages it.

eInvoicing

Sure - you could generate XML e-invoices from Postscript print files. Doing it this way, a legacy billing system can support electronic invoicing.

Of course you need to have some transformation from the generated XML file to a valid eInvoice but anyway.
