Comment 1: What is the status of PDF on non-Windows machines

Submitted by bobcalco on Tue, 2012-01-24 08:36.

I was delighted yesterday to discover PDF4Smalltalk, as I have a fairly complex, data driven document that I need to render now that I made the bold switch from Ruby to Smalltalk. (Well, bold in my opinion, but if I don't hit my deadlines, I don't think it will impress my users.)

I was chagrined to discover how low-level and in the weeds it is, but in itself that's not a problem.

However I was dismayed to read in your presentation from last year that it only works on Windows. I hope this is only referring to the reader renderer, and that I am able to use PDF to *generate* PDF content on Linux. I will be running a web app on Linux and need to replace functionality previously provided by the Prawn library in Ruby.

Can you clarify the status of support on Linux and suggest how I can help out?

Comment 2: PDF4Smalltalk is platform independent

Hi bobcalco,

I moved your comment to the Forum and answered it there, if you don't mind…
