( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, friends!

I am stuck with a problem that I can not 'invoke' a PDF file from my perl program with Win32::Process(...).

system("path-to-file.pdf");
works well, but it is creates a console window (whereas I am writing GUI(Tk) utility) and console window is not desirable.

Following

use Win32::Process; sub ErrorReport{ print Win32::FormatMessage(Win32::GetLastError()); } my $procobj; Win32::Process::Create( $procobj, "d:\\Adobe\\Acrobat 5.0\\Acrobat\\Acrobat.exe", "x D:\\WORK\\Documentation\\cd-writing\\perl-technology\\root-cd-tk\ +\files\\PSAX1250_IG_R610_Iss1-mp.pdf", 0, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, "." ) || die ErrorReport();
works okay on my machine (for given PDF file and path to PDF viewer, but this solution is even worse because I can not guess which PDF viewer has (if at all) user on its machine.

If anyone have an idea, please help me!

Warmest wishes,
Vadim.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
