peterr has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to convert a M$ Word document to (Adobe) PDF format please. :)
I did see a node on doing this here, but it appears to me, that I would need to run this on a Win box, is that correct ? Ideally, I would like to simply run a Perl script on the Linux box (Perl 5.8.1), enter the input filename (Word doc), press a button, and the script converts to PDF format.
However, if I can only do this on a Win box, using OLE (and I do have Word installed, plus Active State Perl 5.8.? ), then no doubt that will have to do. Can someone please explain the modules needed to do this (I have serached cpan), and the limitations there may be.
