Inkscape programming expert needed for project.
I want an add in for Inkscape that will allow a user to be able to 'print' any vector image directly to a communications port (com2, com3, usb, printer driver, etc.) so that the device connected to the com port can 'plot' the vectors, etc. in .plt format or save the same .plt file to a drive for storage.
this is a small example of rectangle generated in Inkscape that has been printed from Inkscape through a printer driver that generates .plt files:
The addin will be designed so that it cannot be copied unless a client buys the addin, so it will need protection built in.
The .plt file will be generated in a number of different formats depending on a configuration file (I have them prepared already) and samples will be given and explained to the appointed programmer.
The addin should be able to detect if the port is locked, blocked, non existent, busy, buffered with data already etc. ie. so it does not crash!
This is project 1 of a number that I have, if the appointed programmer makes a good job of this then the programmer will be offered first choice at the others.
