PHP & Powerpoint?

I hope I'm posting this in the right place...

We are planning a website to be written in PHP (hopefully). One section
of the site will offer powerpoint slide presentations for download.

Are there any PHP-related tools/utils/code/3rd-party stuff that can
facilitate the dynamic assembly of ppt presentations from single slide
presentations- in other words, we want to allow the user to pick and
choose which slides they are interested in, and then build a powerpoint
presentation on the fly containing just their selected slides. The user
could then download this dynamically built presentation.

Is this possible? I was always told that *anything* is possible...

By whom? And how much did you pay for this advice?

You'll need ti use COM to do this.

By my mom, rest her soul.

Ah, I see. That makes sense. Do you know of any COM objects that offer
the functionality I have described, or would I have to look into
creating my own COM objects (ugh)?

I will poke around a bit, but perhaps you could offer an opinion on any
experiences integrating COM objects in PHP code?

Thanks again,
