Hello.

I have a Horde webmail server, and I'd like it to convert Office file attachments to PDF files, so they can be read from Linux terminals. My idea is to add a new button to IMP (Horde's webmail module), which launches a command-line Openoffice conversion macro, which generates the PDF file.

Before I start coding, has anybody already done that? I've seen many posts about batch file conversion (http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=3772&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0), by none of them cover the possibility of launching it from a PHP server srcript.

Thanks in advance.
Javier
