Hello Friends, I know this is not the place to post my question. But i have seen lot of good tech people here thats why i am posting. I have one question for you.At present we are generating some offline reports and sending those as txt file attachments in the mail. My task is i have to send them as PDF attachments instead of TXT file. That means i have to convert txt file to pdf file. How to do this using either java or any other language?? thanks in advance sreedhar garimella Note: Pls bare with me for this inconvenience

Adobe Acrobat converts scanned documents, CAD drawings, electronic files, .txt files etc. to .pdf. You'll have to buy it. I don't know if anything "free" will do it. Adobe Reader is part of Adobe Acrobat and is a free download and lets you only read .pdf files. You can't manipulate or convert with Reader.

if your text document is not too complicated, you can try to create a duplicate in latex, which can be converted to .PS or .PDF with a couple of command, learn more about Latex, it is going to help you.
Here is an alternative solution: * Get Unix and Netscape * open the text file from netscape, e.g., /home/user/abcd.txt * Click Print -> print/save as "abcd.ps" * In Unix prompt type: "% ps2pdf abcd.ps abcd.pdf" * This will work OR the easiest solutions is to use Adobe Acrobat - you will need buy it

Hello Friends, Thank you very much for your responses. I am working in those lines. Regards Sreedhar Garimella
There are a couple of good packages for outputing text to PDF. Probably one of the best free ones is iText If you need absolutely dirt easy with no graphics ability, then there is Etymon PJ If your company doen't like the lack of support of Open Source you can use Big Faceless
