I don't know if this is the same thing that HamNRye
was talking about, but I've been looking at another Adobe service
that converts your documents into PDF. They give you a few free trials but then I think they make you pay. Boo.
If you are going to be any kind of document foramt conversion, I suggest that you first get your data into an XML format and then transform it using XSL and XSLT.
There was just a good article on this on xml.com. Don't get put off by all the java talk. You can use Xalan and FOP as command-line tools, and call them from your Perl script.
Get Strong Together!!
