( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I also said that " I know that the second Write() call which outputs to STDERR does output a valid pdf file.". I didn't think anybody would find it useful for me to post the contents of the entire pdf file. Here's the first few lines of output produced from the second Write():

%%Creator: (ImageMagick)
%%Title: (GLOB(0x92ed52c))
%%CreationDate: (Wed Jan 29 18:07:37 2003)

And here are the last few lines:

%%BoundingBox: 0 0 611 791

UPDATE: I now realize this isn't what a pdf file looks like. This is what a postscript file looks like. Either I have totally missed the boat on how to use Image::Magick, or it doesn't quite work right for all combinations of conversions yet. In any event, thanks to everybody for their help, I've found a better solution to my problem.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
