The following exports are currently implemented, have initial coding,
or are under study.
Exporters can only be used when the presentation is run, because most of
them hardcopy the screen.
Because this functionality is still under development, the use of exporters
is a bit more complicated than the other modules.
- Converts slides and slide-notes into web-pages. Slides can only be
converted to images within the HTML pages. In the future, it will
also be possible to include the slide information as real HTML.
- Convert all slides into images using Image::Magick.
Each slide(view) as one seperate file, in hardly any imaginable format.
- Convert slides into PostScript using standard Tk.
Tk is able to produce real postscript, but only includes text in
a character-size which may be close to the size you requested. Images
and such are not included.
The results are of such a poor quality that I refuse the documentation
of this module to be included.
- Convert slides into PostScript using Image::Magick, but as images.
This produces huge postscript files, and does not work perfectly yet.
Apparently some misunderstanding between me and PerlMagick interface.
The results are not acceptable yet, but I promise documentation when
this module works well enough.
At first, you have to add exporters to your show:
You can find the packages in
'PPresenter::Export::IM_Images' is a
The other way to introduce an exporter is by creating an instance of
PPresenter::Export yourself, and then have
my $obj = PPresenter::Export::IM_Image->new(options);
When the presentation is run, and you have added some exporters, you can
start them using the background-menu. If there are no exporters, then
you will not see the 'export' entry in menu.
The Dynamic module defines an option
-exportPhases which describes whether only the final stage of a
slide should be presented, or all, or a selection.
All exporters share the following options.
- -viewports => which
- Which viewports are selected to be included by default. Possible
values for which are:
- All of the visible slides. If you have slidenotes, but not a
visisble display of them, you won't get them because they cannot
be copied from the screen.
- Slidenotes, but only if visible on the screen.
- Viewports which do not show slidenotes.
- name or [ list-of-names ]
- -exportSlide = > which
- Which slides shall be included.
Possible values for which are:
- The currently selected slides. See the slide-control menu to
find-out which slides are selected. The default.
- Only the currently visible slide.
- All slides, also the not selected slides.
- -imageFormat => format
- The required output format of images. If you use ImageMagick (and
that is the only way to get images on the moment) then you can get
nearly all imaginable formats.
You may use the format name in upper- or in lowercase. Common
- -imageQuality => percentage
- Some image formats can compress better when they leave some information
of the image away. The smaller the value you specify here, the more
image information is left-out. The number of bytes required to store
the image will be smaller, but the quality of the image will suffer.
- -imageWidth => pixels
- The width the resulting images will have. The images are taken from
the screen and resized (with anti-aliasing) to the specified size.
If you do not specify a size, the images will not be resized. The
height of the image will be resized with the same factor as the width.
