EuroRip - A European development of a raster image processor for page desciption languages with common font resources
EuroRip stands for the European development of an Integration tool for text, graphics and images into printed pages. It will use a page description language as the interpreter kernel, but also supporting major graphics languages and image file formats. This will be combined with intelligently hinted outline-fonts available in the system as a common font resource. The EuroRip is an integrated hardware and software solution. It will drive directly a screen and a common laserprinter engine. Furthermore, EuroRip could easily adapted to special screens, laser or inkjet printer engines or typesetters. First prototypes will become available as co-processor boards both for the AT-bus and MCA.
