|   ========================
|
|
|
|
|                                CompoScript
|                                ===========
|
|
|
|     Goldleaf  Publishing,  Inc.  is  proud  to  announce  the  arrival  of
| CompoScript, the state of  the art  PostScript interpreter  for your Atari
| ST/TT.
|
|     CompoScript enables  you to  print PostScript  files on non-PostScript
| printers. In addition, a PostScript file  can be  shown on  the screen and
| there  is  an  option  to  convert  it  to a graphic file, so that you can
| subsequently import it into a  graphics  or  DTP  program  which  does not
| support PostScript.
|
|     If you  use DTP,  Text, CAD,  Graphics, Music Notation or Presentation
| software, then you will almost certainly  benefit from  CompoScript.  Many
| programs can  produce PostScript  files, and by using CompoScript you know
| you will get the best quality possible, both on screen and printer. If you
| use programs on other operating systems, such as Macintosh, MS-DOS, Amiga,
| or  Windows,  you  can  save  your  files  to  disk  and  print  them with
| CompoScript, providing flexibility and compatibility.
|
|
|
| CompoScript obsoletes other PostScript interpreters
| with its amazing features :
|
| Compatibility
| -------------
|     A  high   degree  of  compatibility  means  no  specialized  fonts  or
|     customizing your software for the interpreter;
|
| Flexibility
| -----------
|     CompoScript can  be configured  to automatically  print selected files
|     without any user input, and automatically delete files after printing.
|     It can drive your  printer directly  or through  the operating system.
|     You may  configure memory  usage and  the built-in virtual memory, and
|     edit resolution for file conversion  or  screen  display;    even edit
|     screen angle and frequency for grey scale output!
|
| Typefaces
| ---------
|     CompoScript uses  hinted PostScript  Type 1 fonts, the highest quality
|     font format available.  It includes the standard 35 font set (designed
|     by  Bitstream)  and  not  only  can  these  fonts  be  used  by  other
|     applications, but  any Type  1 font  may be  used in  CompoScript as a
|     built-in font,  simply by  telling CompoScript  the font location!  In
|     addition, the  entire Bitstream  Typeface Library  of Type  1 fonts is
|     available - over 1000 fonts!
|
| Screen Preview
| --------------
|     Optionally view  your file  onscreen, at any resolution up to 600 dpi.
|     Then press a key to immediately print the file.
|
| File conversion
| ---------------
|     Convert PostScript files or clip art  to  GEM  Image  (.IMG)  or TIFF,
|     popular file formats supported by almost all applications.
|
| Font Control
| ------------
|     Define or  edit font  aliases for  printing files with fonts you don't
|     own, or for changing font definitions.
|
| Printer Support
| ---------------
|
| CompoScript supports the following printers :
|
|     Atari SLM 804/605 laser printers -  Epson, Star,  NEC, Panasonic, OKI,
|     Seikosha  &  compatible  9  &  24  pin  printers - Canon BubbleJet and
|     compatible bubble jet printers - HP DeskJet, DeskJet Plus, and DeskJet
|     500 ink jet printers - HP, Epson, NEC and compatible laser printers
|
|     CompoScript  supports  360x360  dpi  printing,  data  compression, and
|     unidirectional /  bidirectional  printing  for  printers  that include
|     these features.
|
|
| Price
| -----
|                  Despite it's incredible feature list...
|                  CompoScript has a SRP of only $349.95.
|
|     CompoScript runs  on any Atari ST/STe/TT with at least one megabyte of
| memory and a hard disk.  For more information, please contact us.
