    The way I see it, it would be a very serious API and way outside the scope of Qt.

    What kind of formats? Basically Ghostscript handles a number of formats or you can use libmagick from ImageMagick but that will probably give you just a bitmap embedded into a postscript container.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    What do you think about setouputFormat() function? will it print in PS format? if yes then I think that means ,it used for conversion into PS format...Is it so?

    It's easiest to use an external tool such as pdf2ps.

    It will but how will you read a pdf file first? You could do that using poppler but that will probably just give you a bitmap.

    Sure, use QProcess.
