Code:
system ("../html2doc pdf 1000 portrait html$prnfile.html $prnfile.pdf ")
print "Content-type:application/pdf \n\n"
create(file,"<$prnfile.pdf")

You did not answer Corona's question, if you do not answer our question it doesn't even help us to understand your requirement, I believe that C-shell itself doesn't have inbuilt feature to convert html to doc even. So you need to depend on external tool or else you can write your own code for conversion utility.

I stopped using csh in the early 90's and it doesn't really surprise me that it may have evolved over the past couple of decades. But system() and create()! In a shell? Smilie

I definitely need to go read a current csh man page sometime soon. Which version of csh should I target?
