C++ API to Export PS to ODT

Render PS to ODT within C++ applications without requiring any third party application

 

Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert PS to ODT in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert PS file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to ODT.

C++ API to Render PS to ODT

  1. Open PS file using Document class reference
  2. Convert PS to DOC by using Save member function
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class reference of Aspose.Words API
  4. Save the document to ODT format using Save member function

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 Install-Package Aspose.Total.Cpp.

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 
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 Odt
wordDoc->Save(u"output.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
doc->Save(L"output.Doc");

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.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");
// save the protected document.
doc->Save(u"Protected.Odt");
