The list is sorted in ascending order of memory usage of the processes, before writing it to PDF.</p> <p>It differs somewhat from other xtopdf recipes, in that no additional code needs to be written, over and above what is already in the xtopdf package. We just have to use the needed commands there, in a series of commands or a pipeline.</p> <p>However, one can still write additional code, by modifying the program used (StdinToPDF.py), if needed, to customize the PDF output.</p>
