int fdf_open(string filename);
The fdf_open() function opens a file with form data. This file must contain the data as returned from a PDF form. Currently, the file has to be created 'manually' by using fopen() and writing the content of HTTP_FDF_DATA with fwrite() into it. A mechanism like for HTML form data where for each input field a variable is created does not exist.
Example 1. Accessing the form data
<?php // Save the FDF data into a temp file $fdffp = fopen("test.fdf", "w"); fwrite($fdffp, $HTTP_FDF_DATA, strlen($HTTP_FDF_DATA)); fclose($fdffp); // Open temp file and evaluate data $fdf = fdf_open("test.fdf"); ... fdf_close($fdf); ?>
