Other documentation relevant to plugin development

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin MultiRIP but not Harlequin Core

Plugins frequently need to create fragments of PostScript language code.

The PostScript Language Reference Manual, 3rd Edition, by Adobe Systems Incorporated, is referred to throughout this manual as [RB3] . There are also several supplements available from Adobe.

There are several Global Graphics extensions to the PostScript language. The Harlequin Extensions Manual describes their use.

Details for some application interfaces (APIs) distributed with the Harlequin MultiRIP are available online in the Harlequin RIP SDK documentation (although that's mostly for the Core RIP SDK). The APIs in Harlequin RIP core interfaces are usually available in HMR, though some of them would not be used. The APIs in Harlequin RIP skin interfaces are available in HMR, except for eHVD, input queues, and raster backends (that's the Core counterpart of plugins).

To view an introductory HTML document which includes specific details on how to build plugins for the Harlequin MultiRIP as well as links to documentation created from the source code, open the file PluginKit\<...>\Manual\index.htm . The number of directories between the Plugin Kit directory and the Manual directory, and the names of the intermediate directories, will vary depending on the method used to install the plugin kit, but the structure does not branch. As an example, the path to the index file of a 64‐bit Windows installation might look something like this:

PluginKit\20.0r0\Final\win_64 all\rel\Manual\index.htm
