Create a PDF from uploaded file on Web server

Hi,

Does anyone know of a way to creat a PDF from files that are uploaded to Apache web server running PHP and have that PDF displayed to the user or even provide a link to access the newly created PDF.

Thanks

Hello,

It depends on your needs, what type of files do you want to convert ?
You can use a pdf library to generate "on the fly" pdf files.
A good library is FPDF : http://www.fpdf.org/

Regards,
Ben

I'm going to have a PHP page that the user will upload files to (doc, txt, xls) and then I want the system to look in the directory and convert thos documents into separate PDF's.
