in reply to convert text file to pdf with PDF::Create

Have you tried using the module yet?
The example in the documentation at PDF::Create is:
my $f1 = $pdf->font('Subtype' => 'Type1', 'Encoding' => 'WinAnsiEncoding', 'BaseFont' => 'Helvetica'); $page->string($f1, 20, 306, 396, "some text");
I would start by reading in your text document, and putting what you read in the "some text" area.
Post your results - I'm just as interested in how this turns out as you are.
