You have a couple of options:
1) Build true vector pdf's using the shp2pdf program. You'll have to request a binary version from someone.
2) Use pdflib in conjunction with MapServer raster output to build a PDF. That's what is done using LandView. Not as sophisticated as 1) but can produce very nice results. In addition you have a bit more control and can add elements like titles, legends and so forth a bit easier.
Pdflib is available at www.pdflib.com. I'll gladly share my perl scripts that drive LandView if anyone is interested.

I've got a CGI MS 3.5 app running on NT/2000 that I would like to add a "Print to PDF" function to (like in the LandView demo?). I've seen reference to shp2PDF in the archive - is that what I need? If so, it doesn't seem to be included with the zipped up binary I downloaded - where do I get it? If not, what alternatives do I have?
thanks for any help,
