<?php 
// create handle for new PDF document 
$pdf = pdf_new(); 

// open a file 
pdf_open_file($pdf, "philosophy.pdf"); 

// start a new page (A4) 
pdf_begin_page($pdf, 595, 842); 

// get and use a font object 
$arial = pdf_findfont($pdf, "Arial", "host", 1); pdf_setfont($pdf, $arial, 10); 

// print text 
pdf_show_xy($pdf, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,", 50, 750); pdf_show_xy($pdf, "than are dreamt of in your philosophy", 50, 730); 

// end page 
pdf_end_page($pdf); 

// close and save file 
pdf_close($pdf); 
?>

In order to use PHP's PDF manipulation capabilities, you need to have the PDFLib library installed on your system. If you're working on Linux, you can download a copy from http://www.pdflib.co...flib/index.html and compile it for your box. If you're running Windows, your job is even simpler - a pre-built PDF library is bundled with your distribution, and all you need to do is activate it by uncommenting the appropriate lines in your PHP configuration file.

Additionally, you'll need a copy of the (free!) Adobe Acrobat PDF reader, so that you can view the documents created via the PDFLib library. You can download a copy of this reader from http://www.adobe.com/

Once you've got everything in place, it's time to create a simple PDF file. Here goes:
