I just noticed an interesting project on

> From the web site:

SCS Reader is an OSGI compatible Java library which is able to read, parse and transform SCS (SNA Character String) data streams. The implementation also offers some converters to transform such streams into Text, PDF, RTF or other formats. At the current state it supports all features of the SCS 5256 printer standard.

It says it emulates a physical printer allowing for detecting bold text etc, and can create a PDF out of it.

I am not familiar with the SCS 5256 standard, so is there anybody who can explain in what situation a user would benefit from this?
