We're preparing to embark on a new development project. It will eventually be
released dual projects similar to Red Hat with a commercially supported side
and a leading edge open source side.
The project will pull data from a database and present info to users. We'll
need a graph/chart component and a way to generate html, PDF and spreadsheet
reports/downloads. It will be a web based interface.
1) I'm thinking we'll write the initial commercial (closed source) code in C.
Anyone have any thoughts/alternative suggestions ?
2) anyone know of a good source of C library routines (something like CPAN) ?
3) Any thoughts on the methods to generate XML via C ?
4) Any suggestions per the generation of the PDF, HTML, etc reports on screen
and for download ? maybe php within the web front end? a set of C routines to
be called based on basic report parameters? others ?
Thanks in advance for your feedback...
