That looks very interesting. I'd never heard of PDFLib.pm (or, indeed, pdflib). I'll be taking a closer look at them.

One question tho'. You declare a number of package variables with this code:

use vars qw ( $TOPMARGIN $BOTTOMMARGIN $LEFTMARGIN $RIGHTMARGIN $PAGEHEIGHTPOINTS $PAGEWIDTHPOINTS );

And then later you declare a number of lexical variables with the same names with this code:

my $PAGEHEIGHTPOINTS = 842; my $PAGEWIDTHPOINTS = 595; # the size of your page my ($TOPMARGIN, $BOTTOMMARGIN, $LEFTMARGIN, $RIGHTMARGIN) = (10, 10, 15, 15);

You then go on to use the lexical variables, but never the package variables. Is this left over from an earlier version of the code?
