PDF::API2 header and footer

by Jaap (Curate)
on Aug 03, 2004 at 08:41 UTC ( #379554=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Jaap has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Wise Monks,

1. When creating a pdf with PDF::API2, how do i specify a common header and footer for all pages? Do i have to add it to each page manually?

2. When i have a large blob of text, how can i spread it over 2 pages (with wrapping)? Do i have to split the text up manually?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Some months ago I needed to find solution to produce PDF documents on the fly. I've looked throw CPAN modules related with PDF but I've chosen another tool - HTMLDOC. It allows you produce PDF or PostScript documents from HTML. This programm has many features: common header and footer, background image etc. You can buy this programm but also you can use free version which keeps all needed functionality.

    Hope it will be useful for you.

    It's only my opinion and it doesn't have pretensions of absoluteness!
