PDFlib is a library of functions which have been created to allow you to generate documents in Adobe’s Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF has become a standard for document storage on the Web. The PDFlib library is now available for use with PHP; in fact, the latest version of PHP comes with the PDFlib already included. All you need to do to activate it and then you can begin creating your own dynamic PDF documents. In this chapter we shall introduce the PDFlib library and examine some of the functions available to the developer.
