|Subject:||On the PDF back end|

I just discovered Lout and am
looking forward to getting to know it.
A big thanks to Dr Jeff Kingston for
writing it and thanks too to Uwe for
porting to Win32.
I saw a few posts about the PDF
back end. There is a *superb* PDF C
library called PDFlib at
which *might* be a starting
point for a full PDF back end.
The library documentation
is of the very highest quality.
The license issue would need
looking at carefully
A commercial PDFlib license is required
for all uses of the software which are not
explicitly covered by the Aladdin Free Public License
(see bottom), for example:
> shipping a commercial product
which contains PDFlib
> distributing (free or commercial) software
based on PDFlib when the source code is
not made available
> implementing commercial Web services
Full details on the site. Whether PDFlib is of any
interest to anyone, I don't know but I thought
I'd mention it ;-)
By the way, two questions if I may:
1. Can you import EPS files with binary
previews (TIFF on the PC) or do you
need to read/process the 30-byte
2. Does it require use of the
libtiff library (or similar) to be
able to import TIFF files by
converting them to EPS?
Again thanks Jeff for making
