PSLib V0.03 ============ Portable PHP library for dynamically generating PostScript files, with support for the PHP scripting language.

THIS IS PUBLIC SOFTWARE RELEASED UNDER THE LGPL see for details on this license. Overview ======== PSLib is a PHP library for generating PostScript files for the PHP free scripting language. It offers an easy way of generating PostScript text and graphics with (so far) limited support for drawing. Call PSlib functions from within your PHP script and voila: dynamic PS files! The functions should be quite self-explainable and somehow mimic the well known proprietary PDFlib which generates dynamic PDF files. Take a look at History, and make the changes to your old code. Supported Programming Environments ================================== The PSLib was developed for usage within a PHP script only. Along with this distribution there is an example called historico.php3 where PSlib is used. PSLib Features ============== - basic drawing lines, rectangles, ... - text text in different fonts and sizes, formatting, built-in font metrics, support for international (Latin, European) character encoding (must have the included - image file formats support for PostScript files (use the GPL software GIMP to generate or convert other well known graphic formats to PS) Supplied Library Clients ======================== TODO Platform support ================ PSlib requires a working PHP environment and will run on any platform that supports PHP. Where to start? =============== Read the included example historico.php3 (This example is actually what originated PSLib.) and functions.txt PSLib resources =============== PSlib is a work in progress.
