CPDS, Interpress and PostScript - A Comparison

This paper was issued at the SEAS Anniversary Meeting 1986 in Jersey. At that ime the development of cheap highly functional laser printers and raster image processors stimulated interest in languages for interfacing to these devices. This paper compares CPDS from IBM, Interpress from Xerox and PostScript from Adobe. Areas covered are design goal, functionality, coding (data representation) and font metrics.
