As of v8 or v9 of PDFlib, some things have changed concerning pdf_fit_textflow . The example (2 posts above) which makes textflow extend accross multiple pages, may be necessary to be changed in this way:

do {
   
      ....

} while(strcmp($result, "_boxfull") == 0);

This is an excerpt of code from the PDFlib Manual that has been modfied for PHP.  It fulfills the very common need to have a textflow extend accross multiple pages.

$pdf is the PDF file resource.  You may want to modify the page size (this is letter size) or the position of the textflow itself.

<?php

$thetext
= "INSERT YOUR MULTI-PAGE TEXT HERE";

$textflow = PDF_create_textflow($pdf, $thetext, "fontname=Tahoma fontsize=9 encoding=winansi");

do {
   
PDF_begin_page_ext($pdf, 612, 792, "");
   
$result = PDF_fit_textflow($pdf, $textflow, 50, 120, 550, 720, "");
   
PDF_end_page_ext($pdf, "");
} while (
strcmp($result, "_stop"));

PDF_delete_textflow($pdf, $textflow);

?>

If you have any templates or pagination that need to be placed on each page, they can go within the do/while loop itself, between the begin_page and end_page functions.
