SpoolTemplate (SpTpl) is a report system based on templates. It allows you to build reports from database queries using just a few lines of code. It bases each report on a set of XML configuration files and a little bit of PHP code. It gets the data to print from a database query or from global variables, and you may output the data from a custom function. Each report may contain many tables, and each table may display data from different queries. It supports page headers, page footers (with page numbering), and page and margin sizes.

Release Notes: This release brings two major updates: support for PHP5 and PostScript output. The main difference between the two PHP versions is the way that SpoolTemplate parses the XML file. In the PHP4 environment, SpoolTemplate requires the DOMXML extension. In PHP 5 environment, it requires the DOM extension. The PostScript output is achieved by the new class that works with the ps extension of PHP.
Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs, and adds one new tag. The new tag, called "function", allows the report to retrieve the data from a user's custom function. The first bug fixed was an endless loop that occurred sometimes if the size of one field matched the size of the column. The other bug was an undefined index that occurred if you set to print the text into some column, but you didn't enable the columnset.
Release Notes: This release adds PDF report generation, column support, and built-in functions. The XML parser has been rewritten. Now SpoolTemplate handles the external entity and the CDATA section.
Release Notes: Row alignment and attribute column position have been fixed.
