The absolute device type, 10

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

The absolute device type, type 10, is present in all versions of the RIP. Its implementation allows a file on the %os% device to be represented as a non-relative file (that is without a name). This is useful for emulating a device (such as %eerom% ) that is not relative, by a file on disk. The name of the device is used as the (PostScript-language) name of the file which is always on %os. For example, the following creates a file %os%abs-example:

(%abs-example%) dup devmount pop dup
  /DeviceType 10
  /Enable true
  /Password 0
>> setdevparams
(w) file dup
