PDF::Writer#x

(Dan Fitzpatrick) #1

Is there a way to get the current x position like you can get the current y position in PDF::Writer?

pdf = PDF::Writer.new
pdf.y
=> 756.0
pdf.x
NoMethodError: undefined method `x' for #<PDF::Writer:0x8433f78>

Thanks,

Dan

No.

PDF::Writer does not keep the current x position.

Hello!

Will this thing eventually replace LaTeX?

Are there any examples of well designed documents / posters / books made using PDF::Writer?

Thanks,
Kyrre

I do believe the 95 page PDF::Writer manual available on it's homepage
is generated using PDF::Writer.

No. I hope to make it far more usable than it is (and it's pretty
darned usable now) but I am not planning on replacing TeX or LaTeX.

That would be cool, wouldn't it? Not that I know LaTeX...

I don't know how much it's been used. I suppose Austin
knows. Austin??

Last I heard, there were some bugs and limitations in it,
but it was still quite usable.
