Hello Experts,

I'm new to PHP, and I'm wondering how hard/expensive is it to create a PDF with PHP?

Coming from an ASP background, I bought a program a long time ago, which allowed me to send a HTML string to it with dynamic data, and it converted it to PDF.

Thank you.

Free, not too hard to get your head around
