Hello -

I would like to collect details about an individual (Name, Company Name, Telephone Number, Email Address, Web Address, etc.) in a mySQL table and when then form is submitted, automatically download a file (or email) a PDF file containing the information they have requested. What would be the best way of going about this?

// We'll be outputting a PDF

// It will be called downloaded.pdf
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="downloaded.pdf"');

// The PDF source is in original.pdf
