HTML2PDF for VMS?

Hi.

We produce HTML files which contain some graphics and the business would now like to convert these to PDF which will then be e-mailed to the clients as attachments.

Is there a way to convert the HTML files to PDF within VMS that is freeware? I have managed to compile a C module to convert text to pdf bu cannot find anything on converting HTML to PDF for the VMS platform.

Thanks.
Hayden.

There's HTMLDOC which is on the Freeware 7 set of disks and is also included as part of the T4 installation.

Hi Clark,

You can make use of the HTMLDOC freeware utility.

You can find it in the below link -
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/freeware/v7_00freeware_abstract.txt
>> HTMLDOC Translate HTML pages into Postscript or PDF

To download HTMLDOC or other utilities from Freeware V7, Refer
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/freeware/

That should meet your requirement.

Re: HTML2PDF for VMS?

The HTMLDOC runs but I keep getting the follwoing error message:

ERR005: Unable to open font width file HTMLDOC_DATA/fonts/Times-Roman.afm!

Any ideas to remedy the problem? Or is this something I need to take up with our system administrator?

Thanks.

Clark,

you have the sources available, have a look for this error message...

The font files seem to exist on the Freeware V7 CD, may it's just a missing HTMLDOC_DATA logical ?

Error 5 indicates the specified file could not be found. HTMLDOC_DATA variable specifies the location of HTMLDOC's data and fonts directories. Have you set HTMLDOC_DATA?
