( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm trying to learn PDF:Template in order to automate some PDF production (phone lists, price lists, the like0). The following code works great until the content reaches the end of the page, then it appears to hang indefinitaly and according to top its not even using up a ton of resources.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw/:standard/; use PDF::Template; my $pdf = PDF::Template->new(filename => 'report.xml'); my $loop = []; push @$loop, {Name => "Test" , Address => rand} for 1..80; $pdf->param( records => $loop ); print header(-type=>'application/pdf'), $pdf->get_buffer;
<pdftemplate h="8"> <pagedef margins="1i"> <font face="Times-Roman"> <header header_height="1.5i">Hello World </header> <row> <textbox w="25%" text="Name" /> <textbox w="25%" text="Address" /> </row> <loop name="records"> <row> <textbox w="25%" text="$Name"/> <textbox w="25%" text="$Address"/> </row> </loop> <textbox w="100%" text="Bottum of list"/> <footer footer_height="1i"> <row> <textbox w="100%" justify="right">Page <var value="__PAGE__" +/></textbox> </row> </footer> </font> </pagedef> </pdftemplate>

Any ideas?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
