How FLY SDK works…

FLY SDK is very powerful conversion engine with many possibilities. It’s simple to integrate yet very flexible and customizable. Only two API calls are needed to convert to any of the vector or bitmap output formats, Below is an example:

PostScript to WMF: Convert 4dbar.ps to 4dbar.wmf using ps2xxx.ini configuration file
VgPsLoadOptions(PS2XXX, “ps2xxx.ini”);
VgPsConvert(“4dbar.ps”, “4dbar.wmf”, PWMF, NULL);

PDF to PNG: Convert 4dbar.pdf to 4dbar.png using the pdf2xxx.ini configuration file
VgPsLoadOptions(PDF2XXX, “pdf2xxx.ini”);
VgPsBitmapConvert(“4dbar.pdf”, “4dbar.png”, PNG, NULL);

EMF to SVG: convert 4dbar.emf to 4dbar.svg using the emfxxx.ini configuration file
VgPsLoadOptions(EMF2XXX, “emf2xxx.ini”);
VgEmfFileFlowTo(“4Dbar.emf”, SVG, “4Dbar.svg”);

The first API call refers to the configuration file (ps2xxx.ini, for example) which can be edited simply with a text editor such as Notepad. It contains instructions on how to perform the conversion and which attributes to apply. An extract of some lines from the CAD SDK look like this:
