Hello
First time trying to use PDF (playtime) - see below and should be self explanatory.

require 'prawn'

ma=[1,2,3,4]
maa=[]
ma.each{|z| maa<<z}

mt=[]
File.open("c:/t.txt").each do
      |z| mt<<z
end

Prawn::Document.generate("c:/simple_table.pdf") do

text "the array values are #{ma}"
text "\n"
text "#{mt}"
text "\n"

start_new_page  
text "bai"  
start_new_page  
text "-- Hai again"  
number_pages "<page> in a total of <total>", [bounds.right - 50, 0]  
end
#####################
Output to PDF is as ....
the array values are [1, 2, 3, 4]

["the rain in Spain\n", "falls mainly on the plain\n", "when will\n", "you ever learn"]

What I want is ....

the array values are [1, 2, 3, 4]

the rain in Spain
falls mainly on the plain
when will
you ever learn

Hi,

  Some time back I started using prawn. I got it working, however  I decided to changed and use wicked pdf. I believe it was the best thing I did.
  While you are still evaluating, please take a look at:
