Hi,

The pre-compiled php_pdf.dll included with 4.0.6 is based on PDFlib version 4.0.0 ($Revision: 1.79.2.1 $).

HOWEVER, according to pdflib.com, version 4.0.0 contains a datetime bomb and will not work past 2001-07-01.

Amusingly enough, PDFlib 4.0.0 was used for PHP4.0.6, released only shortly before this dll would cease to function forever...

An attempt to access pdf functions produces the following error: "Fatal error: PDFlib error: Beta expired - retrieve new version from www.pdflib.com in [script] on line [number]".

Since PDFlib 4.0.1 is available since 2001-05-18, perhaps the next release could include a php_pdf.dll based on 4.0.1?

OR, a fix could be made available on the site (please) because my c++ compiler chokes on 4.0.1, and the documentation included is obviously meant for people who are already experienced with compiling their own dlls...

Addendum: set system date to anything before 2001-07-01 and this version of php_pdf.dll will work.  Not a very useful workaround, but...

You can download a fixed version of pdflib.dll from pdflib.com.
