Has anyone found a good way to create powerpoint files on the fly.

I'd like to go straight from PHP but creating from an HTML or XML doc is fine too...

Also I'm totally Linux so COM Objects on Windows is out...

thanks for any help...

This is the closest thing I've found... not 100% but works.. Doesn't do HTML to PHP but allows PHP to create PPT files on the fly with PHP.

there's a small bug with Case Sensitivity when you first set it up but works once you sort that out

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking... do you want to know how to inject dynamic data into your ppt and also create additional slides?

This works but I haven't done much experimenting with how to format it. If you take a sample Powerpoint presentation and save it to a 'web page' you will see how Powerpoint itself formats things to be able to recreate the Powerpoint format. If you find a PHP library/utility that takes care of it all without too much trouble then use it. The other option is to dump it all to a text format and then format it manually in PowerPoint.
