CUPS is a standards-based printing system for Mac OS X and other Unix-like operating systems. It provides the System V and Berkeley command line interfaces, and uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) Server Message Block (SMB), and AppSocket (a.k.a. JetDirect) protocols are also supported with reduced functionality. CUPS adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer Description ("PPD") based printing options to support real world printing.

PDF Automation Server (PAS) can receive PDF documents from multiple sources concurrently, including email, FTP servers, and local or network folders. Processes can then be defined independently for each document source to perform a number of different functions on the documents. Finally, PAS can route the original or modified document to multiple destinations, including folders, printers, email, and FTP servers. PAS supports the following PDF processing functions: printing, setting security, conversion to images, merging, flattening, and extraction of form field data, importing, exporting, and flattening of annotations, text extraction, assembling, splitting, merging, digital signatures, and stamping.
