Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

flpsed is a WYSIWYG PostScript annotator. You can't remove or modify existing elements of a document, but you can add lines, fill up forms in PDFs and so on.


* Add arbitrary text to existing PostScript documents.
* Reedit text, that has been added with flpsed.
* The overall structure of the PostScript document is not modified. flpsed only adds the additional text.
* Batch processing (no X11 required) to modify tagged text lines that have been entered interactively with flpsed before. This is very useful for repeatedly filling in forms.
* Text lines can be imported from other flpsed-modified documents.
* Import and export PDF. Therefore it can be used as a PDF editor as well.

flpsed is availabe in the "Universe" component of Ubuntu (so make sure it's enabled: System > Administration > Software Sources). To install it:

sudo apt-get install flpsed
