Click the question to show/hide the answerIs it possible to do a batch conversion of files?

Yes. All of EscapeE's functions are available from the command line: e.g:
ESCAPEE 1234.PCL /PDF
creates a file 1234.PDF by default but you can specify the output file using a /TO option. You can also set it up to run continuously and watch for files appearing in a particular directory. See Help section Running jobs using the command line; the command-line options are described in Help Reference topic 'Command line syntax'.

Click the question to show/hide the answerIs there a simple way of constructing a command line?

Open the 'Options|Configuration' dialog and set up the required options, then click on Shortcut. This saves the appropriate command line options as a shortcut (or you can copy the parameters from that dialog and use them on a command line). If you just want to call the program from the Start menu or the desktop you can set up the default directory in the program's 'Properties'.

Yes, the /X option does this. The command-line options are described in the Help Reference section: see list in 'Command line syntax: index'.

Click the question to show/hide the answerWhat throughput can I expect when converting in batch mode? Also what are the system requirements (within reason) for maximum throughput?

It depends on the PCL® file: images slow the conversion down. For typical pages containing normal text it should be possible to achieve many pages per second on any reasonable machine. A PC with the minimum specification for the operating system should run EscapeE without problems.

Click the question to show/hide the answerIs TCP/IP input or output available?
