10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: cawaker on Nov 25, '03 06:48:32PM

so who can come up with a simple way to turn this into a folder action script? drop a file into a folder, bang, out comes pdf, no printing needed. batch pdf converting, haha not a bad idea. I assume since its just a bash script, i can use applescript to just call the terminal commands and such? Actually upon a bit closer looking i think i can modify the postscript to pdf folder action that comes with panther, to work with this script.

No need to write one from scratch - Panther is supplied with a folder action script that does this:

Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts/convert - PostScript to PDF.scpt
