Why to Convert MHTML to PS
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a widely used file format for documents. It is a popular choice for businesses and individuals alike, as it is a secure, reliable, and easy to use format. PDFs are also highly versatile, as they can be viewed on any device, regardless of the operating system or software. However, the MHTML format is not as widely used, and is not as versatile as PDFs. Therefore, it is often necessary to convert MHTML files to PDFs in order to make them more accessible and easier to use.
How Aspose.Total Helps for MHTML to PS Conversion
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of file format automation libraries that allows C++ developers to easily convert MHTML to PS in two simple steps. Firstly, the Aspose.PDF for C++ API can be used to convert MHTML files to DOC. Secondly, the advanced Word Document Processing API, Aspose.Words for C++, can be used to export the DOC file to PS. This makes it easy for developers to quickly and easily convert MHTML files to PS, without having to manually convert the files. Aspose.Total for C++ also provides a range of other features, such as the ability to create, edit, and manipulate PDFs, as well as the ability to convert other file formats, such as HTML, XLS, and PPT.
C++ API to Render MHTML to PS
Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load MHTML file with an instance of Document class reference auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.mhtml"); // save MHTML as a DOC doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); // load DOC with an instance of Document System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc"); // save document as Ps wordDoc->Save(u"output.Ps");
Change Password of MHTML Document via C++
In the process of rendering MHTML to PS, you can open a password protected MHTML and also change its password. In order to change the password of a MHTML file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.
// load an existing MHTML Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.mhtml", L"owner"); // change password of MHTML Document doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser"); // save the document doc->Save(L"output.Doc");
Restrict PS File Editing via C++
You can also restrict PS file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.
// load Doc with an instance of Document auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc"); // document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed. doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password"); // save the protected document. doc->Save(u"Protected.Ps");

What is MHTML File Format?
MHTML files are often created by web browsers when users save web pages for offline viewing or archiving purposes. By bundling all the necessary resources into one file, MHTML ensures that the web page can be viewed and rendered accurately, even without an internet connection or access to the original server.
The MHTML format follows the MIME standard, which is used for encoding and exchanging various types of data over the internet. It uses multipart MIME encoding to package the HTML code and associated resources into a single file. The file typically has a .mht or .mhtml file extension.
MHTML files can be opened and viewed by web browsers that support the format, such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. Some text editors and specialized software also provide the ability to open and edit MHTML files.
The MHTML format offers advantages in terms of portability and convenience, as it allows users to save and share web pages as a single file, ensuring the preservation of the page’s layout, formatting, and linked resources. However, it’s worth noting that MHTML is not as widely used as other web formats like HTML or PDF, and compatibility may vary across different software and platforms.
What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
