The book covers all the major modules for XML processing in Perl, including Most valuably, the last two chapters of Perl & XML give complete examples of. XML is a text-based markup language that has taken the programming world by storm. More powerful than HTML yet less demanding than SGML, XML has. XML and perl. Did you every fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head? If you never did, you should, these things are fun, and fun is good.
For example: Coordinates for PDF:: Currently only the PDF core fonts are supported:. Give some examples that convert xml to pdf using this module. Back to Seekers of Perl Wisdom. Y This is the most potentially confusing attribute, as it may behave one of two ways. A coordinate is a pair x,y of numbers representing a point on a page.
I can't help you with the module installation I don't use strawberry perl , but here's a way to convert your data from an XML file into a PDF: Dumper; use PDF:: Jenda Enoch was right! Enjoy the last years of Rome.
I am most likely to install a new module from CPAN if: PerlMonks graciously bestowed by Tim Vroom. PerlMonks went on a couple dates, and then decided to shack up with The Perl Foundation.
We don't bite newbies here Need Help?? Hi, Thanks for your reply I understand your code and I executed, its generating pdf with input xml data as I posted in the question.
It printing XML data as it is in pdf.
If I want to print XML data more readable in pdf. First you must figure out what you want: Get to know the XML data you've got as input. What elements are there?
What are the rules specifying when an element is present or absent? Figure out what you want the output to look like Here you need to determine formatting, spacing, and everything else.
Which elements indicate the start of a new page? Which sections are formatted as tables? Which as plaintext?
Then figure out how to transform bits of your input to bits of your output. For example: The first row is a header which we Now that you know what sorts of transformations you need to perform, you need to: Wouldn't it be much easier if the data looked like this?!?
If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question. At the risk of sounding snarky, you could simply open in a text editor and print pdf or save as rtf. Clearly this isn't what you mean. You need to format the data somehow. Then the conversion will simply be the application of that your data to that format.
Toolkit and compile using a LaTeX compiler. This would get you a PDF. Without knowing how your XML looks like, I can give you only a very general advice.
For RTF, you will need something like openjade. Most of the latter steps can be done using some simple shell scripts; you can use Perl instead if you prefer that.
Of course, there are also a lot of commercial solutions for what you are asking here, depending on the platform you are using which you did not mention. The results are in!
See what nearly 90, developers picked as their most loved, dreaded, and desired coding languages and more in the Developer Survey. Therefore if someone else has another idea they can help you. David Fullerton, why close the one that was asked and answered first?
Fast even does surprisingly well against your poorly formatted XML: Joel Berger Joel Berger Your information is still xml in a perl hash, so you will still need to parse with an XML library. To see what the resultant hash looks like use Data:: Remember SO is not a "please write my code for me site". Give it a try, I will help you if you have specific questions.
And yes you will need to install Template , as well as a LaTeX compiler.
