You what?

    Today I wrote a shell script to generate a PDF using Panda, and it occured to me that it was bloddy hard. To make a PDF I had to have the script:
  • Generate C code with echo statements
  • Compile the C code
  • Execute the C code

    It made me think, and PandaScript was born. Panda script is a simple engine that reads commands from standard input and uses them to build a PDF document. This makes it much easier to generate a PDF document because you don't have to go through that compilation step that I ad to do today.

    I will endevour to add functionality to PandaScript as it is added to Panda itself.
