What is Printer-Friendly?
Printer-Friendly is a program written in Perl that gives visitors to a web page the ability to view that exact same page in a "printer-friendly" format. This means all images and background colors are stripped out leaving only the text on a plain background. The pages can be configured to include and exclude certain portions of the page thus allowing maximum flexibility. What's more, the resulting pages can include optional headers and footers through the use of a page template. If that wasn't enough, the package also comes with an admin and logging script. The password-protected admin script allows the site owner to edit the page template and view/purge the log files.

How does Printer-Friendly work?
Printer-Friendly parses the HTML page that is going to be printed and generates the printer-friendly page following the layout as defined in the template file. The template file is editable online through the admin script.

In order for Printer-Friendly to work properly, the following are required:

A web host server that:

  • runs a Unix operating system (eg: Linux);
  • allows CGI-BIN access;
  • has a Perl interpreter properly configured and installed;
  • has LWP.pm module for Perl properly installed (verify with your web host if you have this module installed on your web server prior to purchasing the script).
Printer-Friendly will work with both static and dynamically-generated HTML pages.

In no event will CGI City or the program's author be liable to the user of this script or any third party for any damages, including any lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this script, even if user has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
