filllable PDFs with Perl

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I've had good success with spitting out PDFs from Perl scripts for years, using both PDF::API2 and custom built LaTeX source files.

I now have a requirement to generate a number of fillable PDFs. These will be bulk emailed, to be filled in by the user and printed.

Does anyone know, right off hand, of a good way to do that in Perl?

Thanks, CC.

I too would be interested in knowing how to create fillable PDFs. I
find many hits on Google, but no solution, and wasn't
coming up with anything either. I can't believe there's not a module  
for it!

Maybe one of the other PDF modules could be used to analyse an  
existing PDF that contains a fillable-form, and from that could be  
deduced what needs to be put into the PDF?

I use Template::Latex to generate PDFs.  I've never needed a
fillable form, but a quick google search indicates that LaTex should
be able to do that quite easily.
