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

PDF::Reuse was my second idea after looking at PDF::API2. I was really successful with PDF::Reuse, but thought I'd find out about others using TT. PDF::API2 is cool for having absolute control over everything, but I think it's a bit much for my application.

I found PDF::Reuse to be a very good idea, because anyone can create the PDF Templates via any app, which means you don't have to. It also takes the strain out of doing the whole PDF generation via Perl, although caching would probably play a big part in saving on that overhead. And like you said, get the data you need via any method and slap it on the existing PDF with PDF::Reuse.

Lastly, another cool thing about PDF::Reuse it is SOOO fast!!!

Have you played with it much? It seems to fit everything I need, but just wanted to check out TT, like I said, before I go with PDF::Reuse.

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

  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
