I have an industrial printer that requires .prn files to print. I'd like to automate generation of these files using software I write. We start with TIFF files, and then we use special software from the printer vendor to generate the .prn files.
Can I use an ImageMagick extension, Ghostscript, or something else (must run on Linux) to generate these files? I'm using Node.js, but I can easily using bindings or call out to an external shell program.
A PRN file extension is a Windows file format that allows you to use the "print to a file" option. You can convert a PRN file to the PDF file format by renaming it as a file of the PS extension if your printer is a PostScript printer. You can then run it with a program like GhostScript.
