Hello??? scribd is NOT a PDF reader in PHP, it's a Flash application run by a browser plugin. PHP can NEVER provide a PDF reader because....IT RUNS ON THE SERVER!

When are you people going to grasp how PHP works???

Hi Jack of All Trades,

I disagree. I came aware of this thread by looking for a php script providing the ability to view pdf files which are hosted on the server by presenting single pages as jpgs or tiffs. Though scribd is running in flash I believe it's not the the flash script interpreting the whole pdf and presenting it to the reader but the server itself. If you have a closer look you'll find out that there is a latency in opening new pages which imho results from the server generating a new image file that is requested by the flash animation.
