We use 7za for zipping up files off the web-server (eg packaging up
downloads) - it will unzip too I presume. From PHP we run a exec()
command to which we have passed the (clean) filenames and a bunch of
command switches to generate the zip file which is created in a
temporary directory, then we send the relevant file header before
fpassthru of the file created by 7za.

7za is open source, has a command line interface and works on windows
and linux.

I know PHP has pdf commands built in so you can build pdf's on the fly.
However, I'd be really interested in any recommendations for a command
line pdf writer/rewriter. In particular we want to take a pdf that has
been uploaded and automatically generate a sample of the pdf (eg
showing just a few pages, replacing text, or creating a shrunken access
version). Anyone any ideas (must be windows and linux compatible)?
