Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive API that provides powerful document manipulation and conversion features for .NET applications. It includes the Aspose.PDF for .NET API, which enables developers to convert PostScript (PS) files to the DOC format. Once the conversion is complete, the Aspose.Words for .NET API can be used to render the DOC file to the FLATOPC format.
The Aspose.PDF for .NET API is a powerful tool for converting PS files to DOC. It supports a wide range of features, including the ability to convert multiple PS files to DOC in a single operation. It also supports the conversion of encrypted PS files, as well as the conversion of PS files with embedded fonts. Additionally, the API can be used to convert PS files to other popular document formats, such as HTML, XPS, and PDF.
The Aspose.Words for .NET API is a powerful document processing API that enables developers to render DOC files to the FLATOPC format. It supports a wide range of features, including the ability to render multiple DOC files to FLATOPC in a single operation. It also supports the rendering of encrypted DOC files, as well as the rendering of DOC files with embedded fonts. Additionally, the API can be used to render DOC files to other popular document formats, such as HTML, XPS, and PDF.
Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful API that provides developers with the tools they need to add document manipulation and conversion features to their .NET applications. With the Aspose.PDF for .NET API, developers can easily convert PS files to DOC, and with the Aspose.Words for .NET API, they can render DOC files to FLATOPC. Additionally, both APIs support a wide range of features, including the ability to process multiple files in a single operation, as well as the ability to process encrypted and embedded font files.
C# API to Convert PS to FLATOPC
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // save PS as a DOC document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); // load Doc with an instance of Document var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); outputDocument.Save("output.flatopc", SaveFormat.FlatOpc);
Decrypt PS File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting PS to FLATOPC, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the PS using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.ps", "password"); // decrypt PS document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly FLATOPC- File via .NET
In order to protect your FLATOPC from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); document.Save("output.flatopc", SaveFormat.FlatOpc);

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 FLATOPC File Format?
The FLATOPC format is an XML-based file format specifically used by Microsoft Word 2003 and later versions. It serves as a compressed variant of the WordprocessingML format, aiming to improve efficiency in terms of storage and transmission. By utilizing compression techniques, FLATOPC files are designed to occupy less space while maintaining the essential content of the document.
FLATOPC format finds its application not only in Microsoft Word but also in other related software. For instance, Microsoft Office Word Viewer, a program dedicated to viewing Word documents, supports the FLATOPC format. Additionally, Microsoft Office Word for the web, the online version of Microsoft Word, also employs the FLATOPC format for document storage and processing.
The XML-based nature of the FLATOPC format enables structured representation of the document’s content, formatting, and other relevant information. It provides a standardized and machine-readable format that allows for easy parsing and manipulation of Word documents.
