The PDF Chart Creator Command Line Tool is a simple utility that can convert data into a variety of charts as a PDF document.
The chart creation process is initiated by calling PDFChart.exe directly from the command line, or from within a batch file, with parameters that control it's operation.
The parameters can either be passed as arguments or, more usefully, by using one or more "command" files that are themselves passed as arguments or referenced from within other "command" files.
PDF Chart Creator is NOT an Adobe Acrobat plug-in and it does NOT require Adobe Acrobat in order to run or produce PDF documents.
Automatically create bar charts, pie charts, line charts and area charts as PDF documents using a command line or batch file interface.
Create charts with a VERY LOW file size and at HIGH QUALITY (which can be scaled up without any "blockyness" or "jaggies").
Customise the look and feel of all parts of a chart (size, colors, axes, titles, labels, positioning etc).
Automatically calculate and have displayed the "line of best fit" (which uses linear regression analysis) to supporting chart types.
Automatically calculate and have displayed the "moving average" to supporting chart types.
Data values can be integer, floating point or time (HH:MM:SS).
Password protect output PDF document.
Optionally include a bookmark in the output PDF for the chart.
Set PDF permissions to restrict printing, copying and changing.
Set PDF meta information (author, title, subject, keywords, creator, producer, creation date).
Set preferred PDF viewer options (center window, hide toolbar, hide menu bar, hide window user interface, fit window, page mode none/outlines/thumbnails/full screen, page layout single page/1 column/2 column left/2 column right).
Create and include multiple option scripts and convert using lists of data in external text files.
Can keep/update an audit log of files converted.
