( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I feel like I'm on a wild goose chase, but I'm on the quest for a module that will let me create from scratch a dynamic adobe reader viewable (pdf/ps/whatever) fillable form on the fly. Since these files will be accessed through a web browser, I want to be able to output the data as a string without having to save the file.

I've used the PDF::API2 module in the past, but it doesn't look like it allows for form fields. There are lots of html to pdf modules, but I haven't found any yet that have form support. Is there something out there that does what I'm wanting to do?

Thanks in advance.

    [Corion]: Meh. I get the feeling I should post a call-to-action for people to test their modules with the upcoming 5.26 (or 5.25.latest), as it seems that the smoke testers don't really weed out modules that fail without . in @INC
    [Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
    [Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
    [Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
    [Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
    [Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
