Thanks Frank! I actually downloaded just the binary version and that was the problem (comes without the Fop.bat, or the javadocs), I then redownloaded the full version with source code, now everything works fine.. thanks again for your help!

Hi, Charlie:
FOP is implemented in Java, and you should find the eaxct class to interpreted by the Java interpreter. The following
is the batch file that I use to run FOP under Windows MS-DOS command line:
\jdk1.3\bin\java -classpath .;c:\fop\lib\w3c.jar;c:\fop\lib\xerces-1.2.3.jar;c:\fop\lib\xalan-2.0.0.jar;c:\fop\lib\jimi-1.0.jar;c:\fop\fop.jar org.apache.fop.apps.Fop -c conf/userconfig.xml %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8
The -c conf/userconfig.xml is optional to you unless you have other fonts to install.

Subject: FOP help please...

Hi there:
I downloaded the latest FOP from and was trying to run some simple tests from the commandline.. The documentation says you should just run:
FOP fo_inputfile pdf_outputfile (see
but I can't find a FOP.exe or FOP unix binary anywhere.. and since this is java I suspect there isn't any FOP anywhere anyway.. so I searched and looked for commandline examples and found many references to calling org.apache.fop.apps.CommandLine - but then when I checked this against the fop.jar there's NO CLASS with that name!! I couuld only find Command, CommandLineStarter, and CommandLineOptions..
So what gives????
Can someone please help me out???
