    Check out [url]www.sanface.com[/url] - Look for txt2pdf.

    It's a perl solution that works well and is pretty easy to use on
    SCO.
    We use to publish financial reports (hundreds a month) and forward to
    end users by email.

    Shunkware 2000 was installing the modules and "hung" for over two hours.
    The server was completely frozen solid and when I forced a reboot, CUSTOM
    came out with an error stating that a database (example:
    ../opt/dfmhdjjkIKEWR9II32R99324DHFRUY34) was corrupted. I did not have the
    complete time to try to salvage the database, so I used my AIR BAG recovery
    of my server, with the latest Lone-Tar backup.
