( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

ghenry:

I'm just about to start coding, but I'm excited enough about where I'm going that I figured I'd mention it.

I've decided to use a template toolkit (Happens to be HTML::Template, but that doesn't really matter.) to generate my dynamic data. Then, to get the static side of my reports ready to merge with my dynamic data, I'm looking at PDF::Reuse. That seems really good for my particular purposes, 'cause I can off-load the form generation to any third party who's willing to help. I convert their output (from any app) to PDF, plop my template-generated data on top using XY co-ordinates, and it's off to the races...

Don't know much about your details, but maybe this approach will be at least worth checking out.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
