Creates indexed pdf documents from text files. Designed to aid creating an electronic distribution method for legacy system reports, since many mainframe type print spools are plain text. Allows indexing, customizing page settings, font size, font face, and super-imposing text over an image in the case of using pre-printed forms. Supports unlimited levels of indexing bookmarks in documents and system/user configuration files. Suitable for use in an intranet gateway for generating PDF documents in real-time. There is a version compiled for win32 with cygwin available here. There is also a demo available.
