PDF::ReportWriter is a Perl module that produces high-quality PDF reports from a report definition and a data array.

PDF::ReportWriter supports text formatting and alignment, unlimited grouping with group functions, intelligent page breaking, image support, color support, shaped cell backgrounds, and numeric formatting.

What's New in This Release:
The current_page() method was added to retrieve the underlying PDF::API2::Page object.
More barcode properties were added and documented (upper/lower mending zones, custom font/font_size).
The cell font object retrieving code was refactored to be used both in barcode and text cells.
Many fixes were made regarding text and barcode cells alignment of content even when using absolute x, y coordinates.
Another example of barcode document (PDF as a barcode label) was added.
A page duplication example was added.
Out-of-memory errors when defining cells that exceed page height were fixed.
