in reply to Yet Another SVG to PDF Question

When I needed to create multi-page PDFs from SVG, I first created single-page PDFs from SVG by launching Inkscape via system() (see in App-imagestream, not yet on CPAN), and then combined the PDFs to a multi-page PDF using (I think) CAM::PDF (|].

At least in Inkscape, PDF (1.1 I think) supports a wrapping textbox element. I had problems with that element rendering improperly under early Firefox versions (2.x), but as you want to deliver PDF anyway, this shouldn't be a problem.

I suppose that if your tools are not rendering the fonts properly that there is something wonky with the font setup. Maybe these applications need to be told where the fonts are to be found, or the font names need to be mangled? I've only used Inkscape as my renderer (also see uniConvertor for a headless version).

[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
erix saw a tick in a natural history museum collected from the scrotum of the curator (it was removed)
[Your Mother]: The exhibit, the tick, or the scrotum?
[erix]: (the man is even a paleontologist )
[1nickt]: erix unfortunately that's there favourite spot. That's why they are usually spotted crawling *up* your leg.
[erix]: ha, the tick and, as it happens, also the curator (now a professor of Paleont.)
[1nickt]: s/there/their/, ugh sorry.
[Your Mother]: Heh. The only one I ever had on me, I caught on my shin, headed north.
erix looks nervously I got away cleanly from my run , it seems :)
