Question Quick Q: convert ps to pdf-HOWTO


Hi

How do I do this? is there a software or is this done thru command line? I have web pages that I have captured using (print to file) ps file extension. I would like to share these files with others, and wanted to know how to get them to convert to pdf?
Otherwise, is there a direct to pdf printer (not the OOO one) I mean general that can print html, txt, photos, to pdf???

Much appreciated,
Regards,
Sl

So if you only have a few things you can go to ps2pdf.com and have the website convert the files for you (it's free), but doing it yourself is just as easy. ps2pdf is a script that comes bundled with GhostScript. You can read all about it here:

This should tell you everything you need. Hope this helps.

Sorry, could I issue a command in the browser print window like so: (print to file):

Code:
<filename>.ps ps2pdf <filename>.ps
Will it work? i.e. directly convert from html to pdf, via ps...huh?
