Hello Ranchers,
How y'all doing today? Need your help.

I am generating some pdf files from a base pdf template on fly and streaming them to client. When I do this just for one file it is working fine, but now I need to generate several files and stream all of them to client at once. So in this situtaion what are my options?

I did search on google and found that one option would be to compress the content and stream it to client. [ UD: removed link to copyrighted material ] , but how can modify the code on this site to stream dynamically generate pdf file(s) stream to client as a zip file?

Ranchers, please provide me some input to handle this situation. Any other useful sites/information is greatly appreciated.


(Moderator: please move it appropriate forum, if this question doesn't belong here. Thanks.)
