I need to build a online transaction processing system using php and mySQL. Sorry to say, I am a newbie at this. One of the requirements is that when a transaction is processed, a printed bill/invoice should be generated. Can this be done in php ?
If I am not mistaken, a printed output could be generated from ASP by using Crystal Reports or similar third party tools. Is there any such tool for php ? Also, is there a way to do this directly from php ? It would be Ok, I guess, if a text file could be generated from php and the output directed towards the printer.
I would appreciate any pointers/tips/suggestions.
