 Portable Document Format (PDF) For the Server

Portable Document Format (PDF) is the recognized standard for several categories of top-quality displayable output. PDF generally prints well; only a plain text document is more likely to be compatible with any particular printer. Using a SaveAs operation can make your document management processes more powerful through server-side automation of PDF creation. This article introduces the ReportLab library for PDF management and programming. It goes over the programmatic PDF generation, PDF's "Hello, World", and putting together PDF pieces.
