ReportLab's PDFGEN

ReportLab's PDFGEN subpackage contains classes and methods to create PDF files in Python. They only allow basic design and layout creation but are sufficient for simple PDF pages. With the other subpackages of the ReportLab library, you can create PDF files that are much more advanced—using layers and templates. In this section, how ever, we only want to give you a short introduction and an example of how to use the PDFGEN subpackage.

Installation

As mentioned before, the pdfgen package is a sub-package of the reportlab library. To use it, download the reportlab library from http://www.reportlab.com and unzip the file to either the bin directory of your Zope installation (Windows) or somewhere along the path of your Python (UNIX).
