Purdue Perl Mongers,

If you are looking for a way to create PDF files in Perl 5
I suggest using PDF::Haru instead of PDF::Create.  I started
out with Create, wanted to change line thinkness but Create
apparently doesn't have a way to change that.  Haru does.
PDF::Create only requires Perl, PDF::Haru requires you install
the libharu C library but it includes lots of stuff that Create
doesn't and isn't harder to use.
