XFRX - Export VFP reports to electronic formats

The currently supported output formats are: PDF, XPS, DOC, RTF, XLS, HTML, MHT,
TXT, ZIP, XML, XFF (DBF), BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF
and multipage TIFF.
The latest version of XFRX leverages the new report engine architecture introduced in VFP 9.0 as well as supports
the previous versions of XFRX: VFP 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0.
XFRX supports reports merging, interactive features - hyperlinks and
bookmarks - in the output documents, text rotation, custom graphics (charts, watermarks, etc.), document
encryption, font embedding, digital signature, PDF/A and a lot more.
XFRX alternatively allows for bypassing the reporting engine altogether - allowing for generating any of the output formats
directly from your Visual FoxPro code.
XFRX comes with
an advanced localizable report previewing tool with
hyperlink, drilldown and search capabilities.
PDF Library - Generate PDF from your VFP programs
PDF Library (PDFL) is a software tool that allows you to generate PDF documents from your VFP code. It provides a set of functions
that do all the work for you.
PDFL can add text, basic shapes - lines and rectangles, complicated shapes using paths and cubic Bézier curves, pictures, colors
and more. Please consult the manual for details.
When used with XFRX, PDFL can add custom graphics and/or text the the pages generated by XFRX (company logo, watermark, evaluation messages, etc.) (demo).
PDM is a freeware open-sourced tool which helps you to create a complete HTML documentation of your Visual FoxPro project. It creates a detailed description of all databases, classes, forms and programs.
