I use cutePDF and it works perfectly. I don't need a tool like this.

As hinted at in other posts I have made on this subject, pretty much all of the documents I write these days are done in TeX; as such, I just use pdflatex, should I require/desire pdfs.

I use MacOSX, so to create a PDF, all I have to do is print the document I want to make a PDF of, and click the 'Save as PDF' button instead of the 'Print' button.

Thank you guys, for giving me some positive feedback. :)
I understand that alot of you already have the ability to create PDF files, and I know that my script isn't as nice as commercial (and some opensource) software packages.
I mainly wrote my script as not only a functional tool that I, myself will be using, but also to challenge myself in my programming abilities ~ to keep myself sharp, and finally, to provide an easy to use tool that anyone can use anywhere that they can get online.

I'm not certain, but I think that people on cellphones & PDAs could make use of it as well.....possibly...not sure though, no way to try it out. My cell phone is ollllddd :)

While I agree this must have been a nice programming experience, I see zero use for this tool and personally prefer HTML to PDF on the web (hey, what a surprise!).

I personally use Ghostscript with Redmon to create PDFs from any program that can print.

However, the nice thing about your script is that you could probably dump database output into it server-side to very easily create some nice looking reports/tables. The other nice thing appears to be the speed with which the PDF is generated. Going through a print spooler can really slow down the process.
