  • Today I added a bounding box class to PDFLib.pm

    You're perilously close to making me abandon RTF::Writer [cpan.org] in favor of generating PDFs.

    Now all you have to do is replace TeX. And I mean that. It will have to be done eventually. Why wait? Evolve now and avoid the rush later!

      Well it depends what you want - RTF has some stuff like widow/orphan control that PDF doesn't provide. If it's reports you want to generate though, you might want something as rigid as PDF so everyone's copy is forced to be the same.

      What's missing from PDFLib now? Is it just tables? I was thinking of adding those soonish (they're just an extension of the bounding box thing after all).
