Reference information includes sample files that Ricoh ProcessDirector supplies, descriptions of files that Ricoh ProcessDirector uses, and descriptions of the syntax that those files and other properties use.
Ricoh ProcessDirector supplies a set of step templates, which were installed with Ricoh ProcessDirector. The supplied workflows contain steps created from these step templates. You can
copy these templates to create customized steps that they can use when they build
Ricoh ProcessDirector provides AFP form definitions, also called FORMDEFs, that you can use. They are installed
in the /usr/lpp/psf/reslib (AIX and Linux) or C:\Program Files (x86)\Ricoh\PSF\reslib (Windows) directory.
Ricoh ProcessDirector provides AFP page definitions, also called PAGEDEFs, that you can use when you use
the line2afp transform to convert line data and mixed mode data to AFP. They are installed in
the /usr/lpp/psf/reslib (AIX and Linux) or C:\Program Files (x86)\Ricoh\PSF\reslib (Windows) directory.
Although you can map TrueType and OpenType fonts to any available Type 1 or Type
0 fonts, the AFP viewer recognizes a standard set. When you map to any of these fonts,
you do not have to update the Type 1 and Type 0 font map.
Five sets of fonts are included with the Ricoh ProcessDirector media package. The fonts are not available for download when you download Ricoh ProcessDirector. You can request the Ricoh ProcessDirector media package when you order Ricoh ProcessDirector.
The LPD protocol defines a print command called lpr. You can use the lpr command, or several other commands that use the LPD protocol, to submit jobs to LPD
input devices. You can also send jobs using the LPD protocol from other systems, such as z/OS. The
parent server of the LPD input device can be the primary server or an AIX or Linux
When Ricoh ProcessDirector creates a job, it also creates a spool directory. The spool directory contains a
copy of the input file and other files that provide information about the job. Steps
and commands can access the various files in the spool directory and use them during
processing. They can also update existing spool files and write new files to the directory.
Various parts of Ricoh ProcessDirector use the information in control files or control file templates to set and pass values
for different properties. You can copy the control files and control file templates that Ricoh ProcessDirector provides and modify them to meet the needs of the installation.
This topic contains examples of XML input files, XPath expressions, XSLT style sheets,
and Ricoh ProcessDirector overrides files produced by the XSLT style sheets. These examples work with the usage
scenario for processing orders in an XML file.
Ricoh ProcessDirector messages might refer to properties by their database names instead of the field names
that appear in property notebooks. Most of the database property names are similar
to the names in the property notebooks, but they are written in a different format.
