    Doc/PDF to SWF conversion?

    Hi FK,

    I am in need of a word doc to swf and a pdf to swf converter that can be run efficiently and from the command line so it can be automated. So you're probably thinking flash paper from adobe, but I need something that I can run on linux since we will be running a linux box. I have been all over trying to figure out a solution, but havent come up with any so far. Does anyone have any ideas or worked on something similar? Im not opposed to making my own program, but Id need some source to start with since C isnt my strong point.

    Thanks for any help or ideas!

    Hi,

    I made something (for a specific set of files): basically ghostscript would rewrite the file as a pretty old pdf version with no compression, and a perl script would output ming source from the pdf operators

    I believe that a more complete solution was discussed in the opensource forum a while ago

    Musicman, Could you point me in the right direction? Searches yield me nothing, and I want to get on this asap.

    Thank you!

    For Programmer I recommend: Linux open sources for PDF

    For Normal User I recommend: Free online PDF to Flash conversion

    well, I just know such one easy-to-use XFlip flash book maker that could help you to convert PDF/Office document files (PowerPoint, Word or DOC, Excel), Image files to flash standalone swf movie files easily.

    Thanks for any help or ideas!
    hi, phil.harlow, as to your problem, you could find the solution as you like online or google search, try to use XFlip Pro software, good luck!

    For people who have no skills about codes and scripts as me, I suggest the kvisoft's pdf to swf converter. It transfers office documents and PDF to swf flipbooks.
