I would like to add my own recommendation of PdfLib http://www.pdflib.com. 
to Patrick's (see below). It is also worth pointing out that the 
documentation is excellent and that you get the source-code in "C", this is 
well worth inspecting as an example of how to write readable cross-platform 
code.

Although my product PDFingMailer http://www.pdfing.com uses the Windows 
version of PdfLib to create PDF documents from *SCS spooled-files,  I also 
helped Thomas Merz, the author of PdfLib, to port his library to the AS400 
and I can vouch for its functionality.

Regards

David Fowle
