A library to create PDF's
The library is meant to provide a means to generate PDF-files without file-access and as fast as possible, while keeping the API developer-friendly. Given these constraints, I tried to put as many features in it as possible. However, it is a work in progress and not finished by far.
For examples on how to use this library, I'd like to refer to the (unit-)tests, especially those under 'API'.
The unit tests can drop their output in a file by uncommenting or adding a call to the method 'DumpToRandomFile()'. Most tests don't write to the filesystem. I tend to dump the output only for the test I'm currently working on.
Currently on the TODO-list:
- Improve the support for the Base 14 Type 1 fonts,
- improve support for images,
- add support for TrueType fonts.
