PDFlib problems

I have an form that once the user fills out, it sends to MySQL. Now I need to grab that data and put it into a pdf file, for each user. I found some info about using the PDFlib, but I can’t find how to set it up. We are running PHP version 5.2. It appears that I just need help to get the PDFlib installed, so that I can use these functions. If anyone could help me, I’d really appreciate it.

It looks like PDFLib uses DSOs (Dynamic Shared Objects). Your webserver has to be compiled to allow this, then it’s “Turned on” with a directive in either your PHP.INI or HTTPD.CONF files. I do find it interesting that the documentation does seem to have a clear “This is the INSTALL procedure/document”

I have used FPDF ( http://www.fpdf.org/ ) with good success and it does not require “Installation” or a “recompile”, you just need to “Include” the appropriate file in your page.
