Topic: batch Tiff to PDF (preferabbly on HP-UX)
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 51988

I am currently using a program called Image Alchemy to convert mutiple Tiff files into one PDF file on an HP-9000 10.20 Unix box. Because the generated PDF files are quite large, I would like to byte-serve them so they can be displayed a page at a time. Unfortunately, Image Alchemy does not produce "optimized" PDF files and Adobe indicates that this is a requirement for byte-serving. When I attempt to download one of these files from an IIS server (which is capable of byte range serving) I get all of the correct HTTP headers indicating that partial content is being delivered but I have been unable to confirm as of yet whether the byte serving is working properly. My questions is this: Does anyone know of an alternative to Image Alchemy which I can run on HP-UX which will batch convert tiff to an optimized PDF?
