Creation & Conversion


DaVince Tools is a group of DOS (command line) programs for converting JPEG, TIFF and text files to Portable Document Format (PDF) files. As a bonus, included with the product is a TIFF tag viewer and a program that creates 2-dimensional mazes in PDF. These programs were written for command line or batch processing mode. They are stand-alone programs, which means they are not plug-ins for other applications nor do they require other software in order to run. Program execution is controlled by command line arguments and a configuration file. All converters use the same command line syntax. Each converter uses a configuration ".ini" file, which is stored in the Windows root directory. All converters share a significant amount of common features. Using a common command line syntax, all converters provide both many to one file conversion and one to one file conversion. Each converter can also traverse through a directory tree if specified on the command line. Each converter uses its own configuration file, however, there are several configuration options that are common in all converters. Automatic bookmark creation and page compression are some of the options specified in the configuration file. All converters support the use of a command file. A command file provides more versatility in conversion than what can be accomplished using just the command line. A list of files and/or directories is specified for conversion in the command file. This overcomes command line buffer limitations when specifying a large number of files on a command line. Also, custom bookmark settings and multiple configuration profiles can be specified. tiff2pdf supports single and multi-strip files, single and multi-page files, tiled images, binary compression modes 2,3 and 4, and thumbnail generation. txt2pdf supports using the base 14 fonts, text re-flow, DOS, Unix and Mac text files, article threads, headers, footers and multiple columns.
