Actually, the first step creates PostScript files, which are used
by just about every computer. If you can do that step using SoftPC, then
the rest is just as native to a Macintosh as to a PC.

PRN2File is a DOS utility that redirects a DOS print queue to a
file, which means that it should run under SoftPC. You can find it at
