This is the description of required task:
Hi, we need PHP programmer with experience in XML parsing and GD drawing.
Our website [url removed, login to view] currently has .ppt importing functionality, which extracts images and text from it and places it on separate pages (each image occupies one page, text - their own pages without images) in book on website. Feel free to test it and see how it works. Try to register, create a book and import some .ppt file there.
We need to modify this function to convert each slide of .ppt to image (using gd's functions) , scale it properly and insert into book as one page. Positions and order of all objects in slide must be kept.
How it works: we created algorithm which transforms uploaded .ppt file into directory with some files, important ones are - [url removed, login to view] which contains XML with all data of .ppt file, and Pictures directory which contains images from it (these images' filenames are included in [url removed, login to view] , so it is possible to reconstruct everything).
Also in slides of .ppt files can be objects like tables, blocks, etc. Everything must be reconstructed properly and drawn onto resulting image.
If you interested, we can send you piece of current code that does .ppt processing, so you can see what are the ins and outs of it and think of ways to change it.
We are interested in delivery time not later than 3 days, please write only if you can offer such delivery time.
