I happen to know a thing or two about printing, PDF, PostScript, PJL, Fonts and related stuff.

Also familiar with some bits and pieces of Linux, Unix, Samba and Solaris printing. Not to forget bash programming and Windows cmd.exe batch scripting. I also do consultancy in these topics.

If you want, I share some of this knowledge here and on Stackoverflow (SO). Just click to browse for all.

@afrazier: Did you ever compare this "one true answer" with mine? How does mine then rate on your trueness scale?

@MvG: in fact, since about 2 years my preferred kind of pdfimages also is the Poppler one. I updated the answer accordingly. Thanks for the hint!

@Joe: there is no such thing as "PostScript 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6". PostScript specifies levels 1, 2 and 3. Are you sure you did indeed mean PostScript?? The versions you named are there for PDF, not for PostScript.
