in thread Finding the right PDF module

Honestly, I doubt these unique pdf's will ever be intentionally saved. Saving the files would be a waste of resources even if they were periodically cleaned up. The bulk are one-time disposable transaction reports or stock mass mailings that will be printed, mailed, and never viewed again. Even if they are later needed, the saved report will most likely be obsolete and require a re-generation anyway.

However, that's not to say that I won't be saving any of them. It's just that THESE won't need to be saved.

    The idea to save these files is not to "keep" them, rather to quickly finish the generating script and save on processing resources.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
