This may be a stupid question, but for the life of me, I can't figure this out. I need some fresh eyes to fill in the gaps.
I have a perl/CGI program on a unix server. I need to create postscript content using a true-type font and print the content to a networked printer (instead of a local printer for security reasons). I've found modules that will open TTL files (PostScript::Font::TTtoType42 and PostScript::TTF) and modules that will allow me to create postscript content (PostScript::Simple, PostScript::TextBlock, PostScript::Report) which I can then send to a printer. But HOW do I use those font modules in the postscript modules??? All the ps modules take text input for the font type (according to the documentation). I can't figure out how to actually use the TTL files once I've opened them.
I've tried installing a few of them, but got stuck during the install. I would hate to spend hours figuring out the install if I'm not even sure the modules are what I want in the first place.
Thanks in advance...
