PDF Writer for PowerPC

* PDF Writer for Mac – 1.2.1 – Download Here  (10.5 / Leopard).  I think it might work on 10.4 Tiger.

PDFwriter is a printer driver for Mac OS X, which will let you generate PDF files by simply printing. PDFwriter is heavily based on CUPS-PDF. It doesn’t use ghostscript to generate PDF files, instead it uses the Mac OS X internal pdf capabilities.

FormulatePro for Mac PowerPC

FormulatePro 0.0.6b

In my last post we talked about Skim (a really good PDF Reader) and I thought it would be more fulfilling to add this great utility that will help you to fill out the blank spaces on your PDF file.  As I mentioned before, I don’t handle PDF files too often, but this app is probably quite beneficial to have installed in case you ever need to fill out and print online forms, as filling out forms by hand can be tedious at the best of times!

Skim PDF Reader for Mac PowerPC

Skim PDF Reader for Mac PowerPC

This is a light post.  Actually, it’s more like a mention than a post and I will be honest with you…it’s because I don’t use PDFs a lot so and I already have Preview installed, so using Skim isn’t a necessity.  I don’t like having extra/unnecessary software or apps installed on my computer.  But if Preview doesn’t support your PDF file needs, you should take a look at this program.  Skim is not only a PDF reader but also allows you to create/edit notes on the top of your PDF, highlight important information, or just mark what is important so you can come back to all your notes and highlights later on.  I think these are very good features for students or those who are doing projects and gathering a lot of information.  Skim offers more features that will change the way you use/read PDF.

The most important parts of programming:   First of all, you must get into it, once you start I don’t think you ever can stop.  I found this book online (for free / PDF format) that explains/teaches/puts you on track to start programming Macs using Objective-C.  The book/tutorial is for non-programmers and is written by Bert Altenberg, Alex Clarke and Philippe Moughin.  I hope you guys like this post and start some projects for our ever-growing PowerPC community.
