That means generating the document works. Now we need to handle that document.

handling means printing, showing etc.

For Windows there is no such thing as gtklp which means no standard way to 
bring up a print dialog.

A few weeks back I did some research on that and found that basic 
functionality can be achieved by some sort of batch file.

This means in most cases one needs to install Adobe reader since this is used 
to handle the printing part.

The other option would be to write a program in python (e.g. python QT) and 
make this a standalone exe binary which can be called to handle the printing 

If anyone could do some research on how a small programm can be written in QT 
(Nokia) that could handle printing on Windows it would be very helpful.

Until this has been written I could work on a batch file that would open the 
generated pdf in Adobe reader.
