Saturday, 31. December 2005 05:10.In 2003, Anand Pillai posted a recipe of the ASPN cookbook where he published PyText2Pdf.py, a Python implementation of text2pdf. Lino's prn2pdf.py does something similar in another way.
- Both create a PDF file.
- text2pdf creates self-made PDF while prn2pdf uses the ReportLab Toolkit.
- Both are command-line tools, but with different options.
- prn2pdf looks for formatting commands in the file while text2pdf is for real plain-text files.
Anand also started a sourceforge project but appearently did not continue this way.
