Hi Monks!
I am working on creating pdf docs using "PDF::API2" and "PDF::Table" but I cant get or find anything about adding an image to the pdf, has anyone here done anyhting like that that could show me how to add a simple image file to the pdf using the modules above?
Code sample:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use PDF::API2; use PDF::Table; my $pdftable = new PDF::Table; my $pdf = new PDF::API2(-file => "table_test.pdf"); my $page = $pdf->page; #my $image = $pdf->image_jpeg( "images/logo.jpeg" ); #$pdf->page( $image->width, $image->height ); #$pdf->image( $image, 0, 0 ); # some data to layout my $some_data =[ ["image here","1 Lorem ipsum dolor", "Donec odio neque, faucibus vel", "consequat quis, tincidunt vel, felis."], ["Nulla euismod sem eget neque.", "Donec odio neque", "Sed eu velit."], ]; my $left_edge_of_table = 50; # build the table layout $pdftable->table( # required params $pdf, $page, $some_data, x => $left_edge_of_table, w => 495, start_y => 750, next_y => 700, start_h => 300, next_h => 500, # some optional params padding => 5, padding_right => 10, background_color_odd => "gray", background_color_even => "lightblue", #cell background color for +even rows ); # do other stuff with $pdf $pdf->saveas();

Thanks for helping!
