HqnContour OutputFile

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

The value of OutputFile in an Outputs dictionary must be one of:

A string

Specifying the full file name to export the contours to. The file name must be formatted in PostScript language encoding, for example (%C%/temp/outputfile.export) . To suppress file name mapping, we recommend using a slash immediately after the device name.

A procedure (PostScript) or procedure string (JSON)

A procedure that takes no operands and which returns a single string, as described for string above.

An array of strings and names

Values within the array are concatenated in order to create the file name to export to. Names may be selected from the following:

/JobName the job name

/JobPath from Harlequin v12.0r2. The volume and directory path from which the job file is being read.

/Date the date and time on which the job is processed.

/YY two-digit year

/YYYY four-digit year

/MM two-digit numeric month

/MMM three-character month name (in English)

/DD two-digit day

/hh two-digit hour

/mm two-digit minute

/ss two digit second

/Contour the value of ID from the current Intercepts dictionary

/Exten the normal file extension for the exported file format. Includes the leading period (“.”).

/Page The page number within a multi-page file.

/PP, /PPP, /PPPP the page number padded to 2, 3, or 4 digits with leading zeros.

For example:

[ (%C%/Export/) /JobName (-) /Contour (-) /PP /Extens ]

In a JSON configuration the names above must be encoded as strings where the first character is “< “ and the last is “> ”, for example:

[ (%C%/Export/), “<JobName>”, (-), “<Contour>”, (-), “<PP>”, “<Extens>” ]
