#3 PHP Calling of program


I would like on my webpage to give users to view pdf
files in html or pdf, unfortunately when I am given files
for the website they are all in pdf, Instead of
converting all of the files by hand (which is a too many
to convert) I want to be able to call this program from
php and hand it return the html code and the images
in such a way that it's new every time so as to make
sure it is the newest version of the pdf.

Does this sound possible?

    Yes,of course this is possible. It does not require any
    changes to pdftohtml though. Just call it.

    this question referes to "meshko"s reply.

    Waht do you mean by "just call it so"??
    If I call the script, the pdf ist converted to html and that's it.
    Can I display the html-file after the conversion is finished?

    I don't think I completely understand what you want to do.
    After the program finishes you get the html file and you can
    redirect user to it or show a link to the file. Is this not
    what you want to do?
    Do you have some particular interface change in mind that
    can be made to pdftohtml to make the integration easier?
