Parameters

This section lists the parameters for the afp2pdf transform:
-o outputfile
Specifies the output path and file name of the output PDF file. By default, the output PDF file is placed in the same directory as the input file, and it has the same file name as the input file with the extension changed from afp to pdf. For example, when the PDF is generated from an AFP file named afpdoc.afp, an output file named afpdoc.pdf is created.
Note: If AFP is not used as the extension, a pdf extension is still added to the output PDF file.
-pragma aligntext [0|90|180|270] | fdef formdefinition|resource_path=resource path
Use aligntext to specify the rotation value to use when transforming the file. Valid values are 0, 90, 180, or 270 (clockwise). Some AFP files might have already been formatted with a rotated orientation. If this occurs, text is aligned with the vertical axis of the paper rather than the horizontal axis. To correct this, you must use this parameter to align the text as desired.

Use resource_path to specify the path to the resources. This can be a single path or a list of paths separated by semi-colon (;).

Note: When you specify aligntext, you must specify the = sign. For example, aligntext=90.

Use fdef to specify the fully qualified file name of the form definition (FORMDEF) resource to be used when transforming the AFP file. For example,

afp2pdf -pragma fdef=c:\mydirectory\myformdef.fde afpfile.afp
If an inline form definition is associated with the AFP document, then both the fdef from the configuration file and the command line are ignored. If fdef is not included in the configuration file or specified on the command line, the F1A10110 default form definition is used.

When you use -pragma, you can specify only one of the -pragma options: aligntext, fdef, or resource_path. To specify more then one option, use a -pragma entry for each option specified.

-C Configuration File
Specifies the path and file name of the configuration file used with the transform. You can use the default configuration file supplied with the afp2pdf transform, or you can copy the default configuration file and modify it as appropriate. The configuration file contains option-value pairs. If you specify multiple -C options on the command line, the configuration files are processed in the order that you specify them and the results are additive.
Note: If no -C parameter is specified, the default configuration file is used. The default afp2pdf configuration file is located in:
For AIX or Linux
/usr/lpp/psf/afp2pdf/afp2pdf.cfg
For Windows
install_path\afp2pdf\afp2pdf.cfg
-P 6986 | port DEFAULT=6986
Specifies the port number afp2pdf uses to make a connection with the Transform Manager (set by the -S flag). If you specify the -P flag, you must also specify the -S flag. And conversely, if you specify the -S flag, you must also specify the -P flag.
6986
The default port number if InfoPrint Manager is connected to Transform Manager.
port
The port number you specify if InfoPrint Manager is connected to Transform Manager
-S SeverName
Specifies the name of the system on which the Transform Manager is running. The value is:
ServerName
Any valid workstation name on which the Transform Manager is installed and running. The name is defined in /etc/hosts file or by a name server, and can be a nickname like molly, or a dotted decimal address like 9.99.9.23.
Note: If you specify the -P flag, you must also specify the -S flag. And conversely, if you specify the -S flag, you must also specify the -P flag.
-v
Specifies verbose information will be generated to stderr.
afpfile
Specifies the AFP input file to be transformed. This parameter is required.
