(v13) The minrip

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

The minrip is a minimal integration example that shows the absolute minimum set of calls and callbacks that must be implemented in order to use the Harlequin Core SDK. It demonstrates the parts of skinkit, skintest, and associated code that are required. It is not intended for integration or use and produces no output file.

To use the minrip cd to the bin.minrip folder and use:

minrip /<path>/<filename>.ps

For example:

minrip /testfiles/PS/

When using the minrip you can process one or more PostScript language files with a fully-qualified path name.

On Windows exclude the C:, and use forward slashes instead of back slashes (that is, the minrip can only RIP jobs whose path is passed as relative to C:\ on Windows). The path is explicitly relative to C:\ (and the C:\ should be omitted).

No parameter arguments can be used.

If a file name has spaces, it must be inside quotes.

Only PostScript language files can be processed. Any other file type generates an error; for example:

%%[ Error: undefinedfilename; OffendingCommand: file; Info: %C%/TestFiles/8pp_Pantone.pdf-8.tif; File: %console% ]%%
