How to monitor a folder and convert incoming PCL files to PDF files automatically?

Dear all,

we are evaluating your software to be used within our company. We would need to convert around 15000 documents per day from PCL to pdf.

Some questions could not be answered with your online user manual, so please kindly advice about the following questions.

Can verypdf constantly check a folder for new files to be converted automatically?

can the target destination be specified within a command line for every file. As we are working with around 30 branches and every branch is using the same filenames for their documents, we need an option that verypdf saves the converted files to different specified folders. Otherwise its impossible to find out what is what.

Can a converted file be printed out automatically after conversion, and if yes can the printer be pre selected / specified within the command line/file for every single file?

hope to hear from you soon..

best regards
Customer

Above two functions can be achieved easily.

You can put following lines into a .bat file, e.g., you can put them into D:\pcl2pdf.bat file,

=========================================
REM @ECHO OFF
:retry
for %%F in (D:\input\*.pcl) do (
"C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7\pcltool.exe" "%%F" "D:\output\%%~nF.pdf"
move "%%F" "%%F.bak"
)
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 > nul
goto retry

=========================================

This .bat file will monitor "D:\input" folder, once a PCL file appear, it will call "C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7\pcltool.exe" to convert this PCL file to PDF file, and put output PDF file to "D:\output" folder, this .bat file will check "D:\input" folder every five seconds, you can change input folder, output folder and checking time easily in this .bat file.

>>Can a converted file be printed out automatically after conversion, and if yes can the printer be pre selected / specified within the command line/file for every single file?

Yes, you can print the converted PDF file easily, you can use "PDFPrint Command Line" to print the PDF file, "PDFPrint Command Line" can be downloaded from following web page,
