Closing HqnContour output files

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP

The output file created by HqnContour will be completed and closed automatically when the RIP reaches the end of the current job. Note that this does not mean when a PostScript language or PDF file completes processing under the direction of a PostScript control file (calling run , pdfexec etc), but when the RIP returns to save level 2 at the end of the job loop.

If you are submitting multiple PostScript language and/or PDF files in the same PostScript control file, by default all will use the same HqnContour configuration and will be treated as supplying pages for export to the same output file.

Calling InitContour again between submitting those files will close off any open output files and reset the configuration to treat the next file as a new job.

If you are running a PostScript language or PDF file and wish to force the exported file to be completed and closed immediately, without closing the current job, you can call:

/HqnContour /ProcSet findresource /ResetContour get exec

Call it immediately after the submission of a Postscript language or PDF job, that is, after the run , epsexec , pdfexec , etc. It is recommended if another process might need to read the exported file in order to reduce the possibility of a race condition.
