Creating PDF reports with PHP

If you have found yourself developing a web site that requires printable reports, then you will love this blog entry.

A year ago I created a PDF reporting system that used the HTMLtoPDF library. This is a great HTMLtoPDF converter. It utilizes Ghostscript and a few other nifty Perl scripts to generate the PDFs. The only drawback to this package is it requires a few things to be installed on your server.

Today I came across a new HTMLtoPDF php library on Source Forge. This may be another alternative if you are in need of a report writing library but cannot install or modify the required software for the RustyParts HTMLtoPDF php library.
