Why to Convert
Converting PostScript (PS) files to OpenDocument Text (ODT) format is a common requirement for many C++ developers. ODT is an open standard format for text documents, which is supported by many applications, including Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, and OpenOffice. It is also the default format for many Linux distributions. Converting PS files to ODT allows C++ developers to access the content of the files in a format that is more widely supported.
How Aspose.Total Helps for PS to ODT Conversion
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of file format automation libraries that enables C++ developers to easily convert PS to ODT in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert PS file format to DOC. This API provides a wide range of features for manipulating PDF documents, including the ability to convert PDF files to other formats. Secondly, by using the advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++, you can export DOC to ODT. This API provides a comprehensive set of features for manipulating Word documents, including the ability to convert Word documents to other formats.
Aspose.Total for C++ is a powerful and reliable solution for C++ developers who need to convert PS to ODT. It is easy to use and provides a wide range of features for manipulating PDF and Word documents. With Aspose.Total for C++, C++ developers can quickly and easily convert PS to ODT in two simple steps.
C++ API to Render PS to ODT
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 Odt
Change Password of PS Document via C++
In the process of rendering PS to ODT, 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 ODT File Editing via C++
You can also restrict ODT 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.
