Add functionality to your existing SwiftView products with these software utilities.
Directory Monitor: Use SwiftConvert or SwiftPublish with Directory Monitor to create your own automated file conversion server. Directory Monitor automates conversions by monitoring a specified directory for incoming documents, and runs a command when a file is present. A Directory Monitor license can be added without charge to SwiftConvert/SwiftPublish license owners with current maintenance & support coverage.
SwiftConvert Multi-File GUI: Add a GUI to your SwiftConvert experience with this 32-bit utility.
SwiftStamp Multi-File GUI: Add a GUI to your automated document workflow with this 32-bit utility.
Info-Zip: Info-Zip is a simple open-source zip utility that uses the standard “deflation” algorithm. It can be used to unzip the zipped programs we send out or to zip documents for faster viewing with SwiftView (which views zipped documents without unzipping them). It runs at the command prompt by typing commands like “zip output.zip c: \sourcefile.pcl” or “unzip document.zip”. It is available for an incredible number of operating systems and the source code is free from the Info-Zip site. Unfortunately, their website seems to move around a bit, so if you don’t feel like searching for it, we offer the Windows versions of these utilities here for your convenience.
Tiffy: We created a simple program we call “tiffy” that dumps the tags from TIFF files – the most useful form of TIFF file analysis. It is written in “C” and is easily compiled on UNIX system using “cc” as documented in the file. The source can be also be compiled on 16 bit Windows compilers or you can use the the Windows executable provided. Tiffy is primitive and a bit quirky. It only accepts DOS-length 8+3 filenames and has problems with certain characters in the path, such as underscores. If you get the message “The file _____ did not open” you may be experiencing this problem. In that case, try moving the file to the root of your C: drive and give it a short name and a three-letter extension.
