Re: pdf creation utility for hpux

check out 'txt2pdf'.  the version i'm familiar with is from sanface.  however their website doesn't seem to be responding :-(  hard to say what that means exactly...

 

something call 'txt2pdf' is available via freshmeat (i'm not sure if it's sanface's version or not):

since both(?) of these txt2pdf's relies on perl, you might want to just roll your own.  there are plenty of perl modules available from cpan:

you *do* have perl installed, yes? :-)
