    I've had good success with spitting out PDFs from Perl scripts for years, using both PDF::API2 and custom built LaTeX source files.

    I now have a requirement to generate a number of fillable PDFs. These will be bulk emailed, to be filled in by the user and printed.

    Does anyone know, right off hand, of a good way to do that in Perl?

    Thanks, CC.

    I use Template::Latex to generate PDFs. I've never needed a
    fillable form, but a quick google search indicates that LaTex should
    be able to do that quite easily.
