Web/HTML To PDF REST API for Perl Samples

perl_logoPerl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed for text manipulation and now used for a wide range of tasks including system administration, web development, network programming, GUI development, and more.

Perl is a family of high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages. The languages in this family include Perl 5 and Perl 6.

Though Perl is not officially an acronym, there are various backronyms in use, the most well-known being “Practical Extraction and Reporting Language”. Perl was originally developed by Larry Wall in 1987 as a general-purpose Unix scripting language to make report processing easier. Since then, it has undergone many changes and revisions. Perl 6, which began as a redesign of Perl 5 in 2000, eventually evolved into a separate language. Both languages continue to be developed independently by different development teams and liberally borrow ideas from one another.

In this post, SelectPdf team has put together a few Perl samples for our Html To Pdf API to make your life a little easier if you need to convert from web pages to pdf in your Perl applications.

How to fix: Conversion failure. Could not find ‘Select.Html.dep’.

(Updated in December 2016).

SelectPdf Html To Pdf Converter needs 2 files to work. They are different for the 2 versions that we offer:

Select.Pdf Library for .NET – Commercial Edition

Select.Pdf for .NET requires the .NET assembly Select.Pdf.dll and if the html to converter is used, an additional file called Select.Html.dep. This file, because it does not have a reference in the project, might not get copied to the deployment destination. To fix the problem, copy Select.Html.dep manually. More details about this here:
https://selectpdf.com/docs/Deployment.htm

SelectPdf Html To Pdf Converter – Community Edition

SelectPdf Html To Pdf converter requires 2 files to work: the .NET assembly Select.HtmlToPdf.dll and an additional file called Select.Html.dep. This file, because it does not have a reference in the project, might not get copied to the deployment destination. To fix the problem, copy Select.Html.dep manually. More details about this here:
https://selectpdf.com/html-to-pdf/docs/html/Deployment.htm

IMPORTANT: If you are setting the full path to Select.Html.dep in code using the HtmlEngineFullPath property of the GlobalProperties class, do not forget to include the file name (Select.Html.dep) with the path.

UPDATE (December 2016):

There are special cases that need to be taken into account when deploying applications that use SelectPdf and you get the “Conversion failure. Could not find ‘Select.Html.dep'” error. One is related to One Click deployments (Publish…) from Visual Studio.

To be sure that Select.Html.dep is deployed, add it into the project as a regular file and set the ‘Build Action’ to ‘Content’ and ‘Copy to Output Directory’ to ‘Copy Always’. Rebuild and redeploy your project (make sure that Select.Html.dep.deploy exists in the deployment folder).
