Hello fellow scott!

I didn't need to do this programmatically, but by hand. I had a whole bunch
of images (just keep reading) that i needed in .ps and then in .eps.

Looking on the web, someone, somewhere, suggested installing on my computer
a postscript printer. This printer can be found easily enough by ...
installing it.

1. Start Menu->Settings->Printers and Faxes
2. Add Printer (dlg pops up)
3. Click Next, then select the radio btn "Local printer attached to this
computer" (click next)
4. In the combo box, select "FILE: (Print to File)" click next
5. In the left listbox "Manufacturer" choose "QMS", and "QMS ColorScript
1000 Level1" in the Printers listbox and click next.

I'm not going to install it twice on my computer, so you're on your own for
the rest. Then all you have to do is "print" your rtf document and you'll
get a .ps file (If you do this by hand, a dialog always pops up asking you
for a file name).

i know there is a way to do this in a .bat file, which i did with hundreds
of images over and over, but i have since gotten rid of these,
unfortunately. If i find them i'll let you know.

Thank you. But I need a program as it is going to run in the background the
whole day. I need help towards this direction.

"Printing" to a file could be done (without interaction?) in a winapp. I
haven't gone through the work to check this out, but, if you don't mind
installing another printer (no extra files needed on winxp), then this seems
to be the easiest way to go... and it will work with any printable document,
whether it be rtf, ms office, jpg, etc...
