Now that I have enough data entry forms, I have to deal with *one*
It's for management. It has to look decent.
My first idea was to use PHP or Perl to render the pages via a web
server, and put some page breaks in with CSS. It's dodgy but it works
and it's simple. The only issue I have with this is that it's "external"
to the app, ie the user has to open Mozilla ( or I suppose I could
trigger Mozilla and open to a CGI page or something ).
Is there a better solution? I've heard of GtkHtml, but I'm not sure
exactly what this gives me, and how it would print. However I assume I
can embed it in my app, which would be a bonus if it wasn't too much
I'm also aware of some report generator packages around, but I'm really
just trying to keep things simple - for the moment - so I can get what's
been done on a desktop and tested, and maybe move onto a full-featured
