About the tools

The Batik distribution contains several pre-packaged demos:

Squiggle SVG Browser

The Squiggle SVG Browser lets you view SVG file, zoom, pan and rotate in the content and select text items in the image and much more.

SVG Rasterizer

The SVG Rasterizer is a utility that can convert SVG files to a raster format. The tool can convert individual files or sets of files, making it easy to convert entire directories of SVG files. The supported formats are JPEG, PNG, and TIFF, however the design allows new formats to be added easily. In addition (and despite the name) the rasterizer tool can also convert SVG files into PDF.

SVG Font Converter

The SVG Font Converter lets developers convert character ranges from the True Type Font format to the SVG Font format to embed in SVG documents. This allows SVG document to be fully self-contained and have their rendered identically on all systems.

SVG Pretty Printer

The SVG Pretty Printer lets developers “pretty-up” their SVG files and get their tabulations and other cosmetic parameters in order. It can also be used to modify the DOCTYPE declaration on SVG files.
