Project Description

We would like to read a static pdf file into a php program and add dynamic data. Program is written using pdflib and uses the template option of pdflib. Problem is when we do this we receive the error "file has been corrupted and can not be recovered". when we send the modified file to a web browser.

Purpose of the program is add information to a already made pdf file. So there may be alternative methods to add dynamic data to a static pdf file and we are open to suggestions. We are not interested in just taking the static pdf file and converting it to an raster image and placing it on the page. Took much defination is lost so the vector portion of the pdf needs to be maintained.

testing will be to have variable data entered into a form that includes the x/y coordinates then run a program that adds these to a static pdf file that already exists. Current thought is to run a php program to generate pdfs using pdflib that would read in the static pdf file using template commands. Then start a new page, place the template, place the variable data using standard pdflib commands and the sent the buffer to web browser.
