in reply to Need Help for Convert PDF to HTML

Importing into Google Docs and converting to HTML is one way of doing this. As monks have discussed, the HTML thus generated will not look exactly like the pdf. If you want to automate it, Google Docs has an API, and there seem to be CPAN modules for using that API, but I haven't studied whether the API supports the pdf => HTML conversion in which you are interested. Any experience with this, monks?

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
