(v13) 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.

The API Reference Manual describes provides information on the various application interfaces (APIs) distributed with the Harlequin MultiRIP.

The platform‐specific appendices list these documents, and others relevant to development on each platform. See the end of the appropriate appendix.

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 your platform and 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\XX.0r0\Final\win_64 all\rel\Manual\index.htm

Where XX is the version number.
