SAL Home PROGRAM Tools & Utilities


PDFlib is a library of C routines which allow you to programmatically generate files in Adobe's Portable Document Format PDF. PDFlib acts as a backend processor to your own programs. While you (the programmer) are responsible for retrieving or maintaining the data to be processed, PDFlib takes over the task of generating the PDF code which graphically represents your data. While you must still format and arrange your text and graphical objects, PDFlib frees you from the internals and intricacies of PDF. Although being far from complete, PDFlib already offers many useful functions for creating text, graphics, images and hypertext elements in PDF files.
