wxPdfDocument-Another port of FPDF

wxPdfDocument is a C++ class which allows wxWidgets applications to generate PDF files. The code is a port of FPDF – a free PHP class for generating PDF files – to C++ using the wxWidgets library. wxPdfDocument does not make use of any libraries like PDFlib or ClibPDF which require a fee at least for commercial usage. wxPdfDocument is published under the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) license. This means you may use it for any kind of usage and modify it to suit your needs.
