Installation instructions

Xml2Pdf is easy to install and use. You can use it with your web-server or directly on command-line.

Web usage instruction

Put the xml2pdf directory into a directory accessible by your web-server. That's all.

Now you can make pdf in your php script using :

  1. include('Xml2Pdf.php');
  2. $obj new Xml2Pdf('myXmlFil.xml');
  3. $pdf $obj->render();
  4. $pdf->Output();
