Hi there,

I'm very pleased to announce the immediate availability of pkpgcounter v1.00

pkpgcounter is a 100% Python written standalone script licensed under the
terms of the GNU GPL.

pkpgcounter parses printable files, and outputs the number of pages in

pkpgcounter exists since 2003 as part of our PyKota print quota and
accounting solution for CUPS and LPRng, but is now also available
independantly, and completely free of charge, contrary to PyKota.

pkpgcounter (in its PyKota-embedded form) is currently used in
more than 150 universities or companies around the world.

pkpgcounter currently recognizes the following formats :

  - PostScript (both DSC compliant and binary)
  - PDF
  - PCL3/4/5
  - PCLXL (aka PCL6)
  - ESC/P2
In the future other formats and possibilities will be added.

Learn more about pkpgcounter or download it from :


NB : speed is currently NOT the goal in pkpgcounter, but accuracy is.
You can anyway greatly increase parsing speed by installing the 
Python accelerator Psyco (http://psyco.sf.net) if your architecture
supports it.

Thank you for reading.

Any comment is welcome.
