Is anyone working on a text to pdf converter or a version of Make Spec that generates a pdf?

Adobe should have a site that converts text to PDF. --Ryan Doug Hudgeon wrote:

We're currently using PDFLib (www.pdflib.com) with PHP to generate PDF documents on the fly on our server. I was wondering if anyone was developing an equivalent dialect for Rebol. At 11:18 AM 30-04-01 -0700, you wrote:

Obviously, and many other programs do it. But that was not the question. Anyway, if someone is interested to do a rebol pdf generator but isn't too sure how, there is a freeware program written in VB with source, so that should help and encourage the candidate. As for the name of the program, er, I forgot. If there is interest, mail me and I'll look it up. fantam

I'm quite interested, because I'm rewriting a more generalized version of make-spec and it would be nice to add PDF formatting. PDF specs are public, but I couldn't find them on Adobe's site.

[ Not working on it, but if you need it, you could use this trick: - get ghostscript & ghostview @ http://www.ghostgum.com.au (for free) - save your document in ps format. Under Win env, this is done by choosing "Print to file" in the "Print..." box. - use ghostview to convert your *.ps into a *.pdf. hope this help ! chr== ]

Hi all, Sorry for the delay in my answer (no internet connection at home). Here's the link to a free html to pdf converter with source code, but please note this is not the one I had in mind. I just can't remember where I've seen the VB project. But you might prefer to read C++ code anyway. http://www.easysw.com/htmldoc/ Good luck, and keep me posted when you achieve something interesting. fantam
