Why to Convert PS to Markdown
Markdown is a lightweight markup language that is used to format plain text documents. It is widely used for writing on the web, and is the preferred format for many developers. It is easy to read and write, and is supported by many popular text editors. Converting PostScript (PS) files to Markdown can be beneficial for developers who need to quickly and easily format their documents.
How Aspose.Total Helps for PS to Markdown Conversion
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of file format automation libraries that enables C++ developers to easily convert PS to MARKDOWN in two simple steps. Firstly, the Aspose.PDF for C++ API can be used to convert PS file format to DOC. Secondly, the advanced Word Document Processing API, Aspose.Words for C++, can be used to export DOC to MARKDOWN. This makes it easy for developers to quickly and easily convert their PS files to Markdown, without having to manually format the documents. Aspose.Total for C++ also provides a wide range of other features, such as the ability to convert PDF to HTML, convert images to PDF, and more.
C++ API to Render PS to MARKDOWN
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 PS file with an instance of Document class reference
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.ps");
// save PS as a DOC
// load DOC with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc");
// save document as Markdown
Change Password of PS Document via C++
In the process of rendering PS to MARKDOWN, you can open a password protected PS and also change its password. In order to change the password of a PS 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 PS Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.ps", L"owner");
// change password of PS Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document
Restrict MARKDOWN File Editing via C++
You can also restrict MARKDOWN 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.
// save the protected document.

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.
What is MARKDOWN File Format?
Markdown, a lightweight markup language widely utilized for creating formatted documents and web content, offers a user-friendly and efficient solution. With its straightforward syntax, Markdown allows users to quickly learn and apply it for various purposes. Its versatility is a key advantage, as it accommodates the creation of simple notes, to-do lists, as well as complex technical documentation and web pages. Moreover, Markdown provides flexibility by enabling easy conversion to other formats, including HTML, PDF, and DOCX, enhancing its portability.
Simplicity is another valuable aspect of Markdown. By employing a minimal syntax, it allows users to focus on the content of their documents rather than grappling with intricate formatting rules. This simplicity facilitates swift and efficient content creation, eliminating the need to dwell on formatting minutiae. Markdown also boasts compatibility with numerous tools and platforms, making it highly accessible. Notion, Obsidian, and Bear are just a few examples of popular writing and note-taking applications that support Markdown. Furthermore, Markdown files can be effortlessly shared and collaborated on through version control systems like Git, streamlining collaborative workflows.
