Once you’ve installed and activated your copy of Harlequin Core and used it to RIP a number of PDF files with a variety of configurations, you can discover more about how to make it work within the solution that you’re building by reading more GGS documentation.

• To learn more about how to configure the RIP for different resolutions, raster interleaving, color spaces etc, and how to set up color management, see the Harlequin Extensions Manual.

• The Harlequin Core RIP is supplied as a pre-built binary with two layers around it that are supplied as source code.


• The inner layer, or “skinkit” is supplied in source just because there’s a very small likelihood that you may need to change it. On the other hand, the outer layer, or “skintest”, is there as boilerplate code for you to amend as necessary to integrate the HHR efficiently into your solution. For example, you can change skintest to add a “raster back end” to deliver raster data in exactly the format required to wherever you need it to go.

• To learn more about how to change the skintest layer and to rebuild the HHR see the Harlequin Core SDK Developer's Guide.


• You can also build your own code modules that interface directly with the Harlequin Core RIP (for example, to recover progress and error information, to receive optimized rasters for variable data print, or to replace or augment the built-in color management). To learn more about these APIs see the Harlequin API Reference Manual.

• Specific details for each version of HHR, including the exact operating system versions on which is it supported and required compiler versions, are delivered in the Harlequin Core Release Notes.

Hqn100 - Guide to Harlequin Core Resources 13.0r1 provides more detail on where to look for technical documentation, example TestConfigs, Page Features and sample files.
