Re: [PBML] Challenge in Creating reports
- Really, I think you should be looking at the format() and write() calls.
It should be able to do something very close to what it sounds like you're
perldoc -f format
perldoc -f write

Subject: [PBML] Challenge in Creating reports
Hello every one.
A few days back I had inquired about printing to a printer. I still don't
understand how to send output to the printer. Any help in this regard
will be welcomed. I want to know how to access the default printer and
how to allow user to select another printer.
My main question however is that if perl was initialy ment for reporting
etc. then how is it actually done. I want to create grid like format for
reports. When I display the report in a tabular format I want grid lines
between the columns. Secondly I want to know how can I change the
attributes like bold and italics underline etc. Is there any way to
change the fonts also. And most importantly the size of the font.
Please mail back as I am on a very inovative expriment. I have created a
software in VB and through the call of shell() function I am going to call
this perl script to print to the printer. I know how to run the scripts
with the shell() function only I don't know how to create reports.
