in reply to Turning HTML into an Image

Since HTML is a formatting language, not a layout language, you won't get perfect results.

For basics, though, I'd recommend Image::Magick. It requires installation of ImageMagick (see www.imagemagick.org), ghostscript, and a whole bunch of other subsidiary programs, but you can transform HTML into pretty much any kind of image you want. Plus, you'll find it handy in resizing those images.

You might also want to check out HTML::FormatPS.

    Yeah...I have ImageMagick but can't find anything in the docs with what I want to do...If you have a quick sample, I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    PS. Did find an external program that will turn HTML to PDF (close but not what I want -- although maybe I can go HTML --> PDF --> JPG -- but I'd rather fly direct than have lay overs):

[robby_dobby]: guess I have to take a look at it off-work. I don't understand what those words mean, honestly :-)
[Corion]: Oooh. Tinc really looks good. It seems that it could even be used to link up (a segment of) my home network with (a segment of) a friends network, to create a private network over the internet
[marto]: fun times :)
