One component of Infoprint Server is the Transform Interface. This component communicates with transforms that IBM transform products provide. Transforms convert data from one format to another, for example, from PDF to AFP format, or from AFP to PCL format. Administrators can set up the transforms to automatically transform documents before they are printed. Users can also use the z/OS UNIX command line to transform documents, which can then be saved in the converted format and later printed or sent to other users.
This IBM Redbooks publication presents a comprehensive discussion of the Infoprint Server transforms and provides detailed steps for customizing and using them. It includes the following topics:
- An introduction to Infoprint Transforms
- How to customize the transforms
- How to customize the transform daemons
- How end users use the transforms
