>I'm looking for a way to programmatically use Adobe's export to PS function, but it appears that there is not even a command line option to do this. Any thoughts? Are there any 3rd party tools that do as good a job of converting PDF's to PS?
>Also,are there tools that have a command line interface that will let me optomize an exisitng PDF for printing (similar to Distiller's PDF creation for print on an EPS or PS file)?

Although not being commandline driven, the Asura software from german company OneVision ( is the absolutelt best software when it comes to creating PDFs for printing. It is hotfolder driven in the same manner that Distiller works, but if youre serious about the printing part, I'd recommend a deeper look.
