Introduction
------------

pdfdom is a library to build PDF documents using a document object model. This
makes it easy for developers to build complex documents.

Terms and definitions
---------------------
pdfdom uses so-called containers for its operation. Each container is a
rectangle with or without content. Some basic predefined containers are
available, such as a text container with clipping support, images and tables.

Containers can clip each other, can be placed on a z-axis, and have support
for padding, margin and borders (similar to HTML).

Installation
------------

For the proper operation of pdfdom, you need the fpdf library (pdfdom was
tested using fpdf 1.52, but any later version should also work).

To quickstart the examples, copy fpdf into the pdfdom root directory, so 
that the fpdf directory is placed beneath the folders uml, tests, font and
classes.
