I want to add drivers for the Xerox Docuprint Series Printer
I have been offered there "special additions" to HP PCL3 codes
However they request I sign a non-discolsure agreement
Considering both gs-aladdin and gs (gnu gs) I was think that
any driver I make would be considered a dervived work
So I could not write the drivers with the information from Xerox
and still be ok with the non-discolsure agreement.
Am I Right? I am going to be contacting the guy via phone
and discuss this finally, and see if I can get them to
I wouldn't sign anything. NDAs are bad news, and signing one will
only get you into trouble. You'd be better off reverse-engineering
Also, are you sure you need these codes? After all, ghostscript just
dumps a simple bitmap to the printer, it doesn't try to optimize it
into circles, squares, lines, ... Plain PCL3 handles this just fine.
