Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive file format automation library that enables C++ developers to easily convert XPS to PS in two simple steps. The first step involves using the Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert XPS files to DOC. This API provides a wide range of features that allow developers to manipulate PDF documents with ease. It also supports a variety of formats, including XPS, PDF, HTML, and more. The second step involves using the advanced Word Document Processing API, Aspose.Words for C++. This API provides a comprehensive set of features that allow developers to create, edit, and convert Word documents with ease. It also supports a variety of formats, including DOC, DOCX, HTML, and more. With Aspose.Total for C++, developers can quickly and easily convert XPS to PS with just a few lines of code. This library provides a comprehensive set of features that make it easy to automate file format conversions, allowing developers to save time and effort.
C++ API to Render XPS 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 XPS file with an instance of Document class reference auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.xps"); // save XPS 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 XPS Document via C++
In the process of rendering XPS to PS, you can open a password protected XPS and also change its password. In order to change the password of a XPS 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 XPS Document auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.xps", L"owner"); // change password of XPS 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 XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
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.
