What is html2pdf?
html2pdf is supposed to be a "complier" to "complie" HTML documents to PDF documents (Portable Document Format, from Adobe). Since pdf is really portable, and its syntax isn't too hard to learn, and HTML is my favourite markup language, I choose them.
In this stage of development, all versions are command line oriented. For the win32 users, please run it from the "MS DOS prompt". There will be a GUI front-end later, both for win32 and X Windows.
This programs is for making documents. This is why although I use HTML, I won't implement some features that are not related to making documents, such as java scripts, vb scripts, forms, frames or any fancy stuff for interesting homepages.
Although the program is develop under Linux, the program will be portable between the UNIX platforms. However, I only have access to Linux (at home) and Solaris/SunOS and SGI/IRIX (in school). Therefore, the main releases are in the form of these OS. Of course Win32 will be included (many people in the world are using Windows95/98/NT, including me).
One more important thing about html2pdf is that it is freeware, totally FREE. You do not have to pay me (of course I won't reject you if you want to). As a result, I am NOT responsible for what the program will do to your computer. If you have problems, I will be happy to help.
