Subject [users@httpd] serving pdf
Date Sun, 05 Mar 2006 05:17:23 GMT
How do I serve pdf output from python scripts directly to the user's 

I know I can write the output to a pdf file and then serve an 
intermediate page containing a link or button for the user to click but 
I want to bypass that step.

The pdf output contains info the user wants to remain private so it 
would be brilliant to avoid writing it as a file then linking to it. I 
suppose I could delete the file afterwards if I'm forced to go that way.

Also, we don't want the user to be able to alter the content hence html 
output - although easy - is not the way to go.

Thanks for hints or links to more info. Professor Google hasn't been so 
helpful so far.
