  • A while ago I wrote in my journal about a program I wrote for my wife (an English Teacher) that creates PDF bingo cards created from a list of words she specified. I suspect it could be just as easy to use numbers too.

    I've put the code here [axkit.org] in case anyone is bored and wants to play bingo ;-)
  • Hmmmm very interesting, I thought about this, your example code will give me a serious head start.

    I expect also to make some control mechanisms so that the program can see when a plate has bingo.

    This could also form the base for the actual game.
  • Hi Matt,

    You wouldn't happen to know how to get PDFLib running under OS X?

    - I downloaded the tarball from www.pdflib.com, but there is no installation quite, and I do not quite understand the structure of the pm file (the package name is not PDFLib).

    I will probably ask this question at the Perl OS X mailing list when I get the time.
    • I have finally gotten PDFLib to compile on my machine.

      This link [yahoo.com] holds the solution.

      Which actually just is a simple:

      bash-2.05$ CFLAGS=-I/Developer/Headers/FlatCarbon LDFLAGS="-framework CoreServices -framework ApplicationServices" ./configure
