I'm converting an Oracle Forms/Reports application to the web using PHP.  I'm using the pdf lib to generate the reports and using the pdf_show_boxed routine for all output. The reports are all text, no pics of any kind. The  problem is that the output from even a one page report is huge, 380k compared to the identical Oracle report output which is around 6k.  I know you can't tell a lot without the specifics but.. My code is tight and doesn't seem to be calling the routine any more than necessary, the output looks fine, the generation response time is fine... but the file size is huge for a small report.  Got any ideas on how I can reduce this? Does the pdf_show_boxed routine generate a lot more output than other output routines I could use? Any advice would be appreciated. Other than this I'm very impressed with the functionality of this stuff!
