How most simply can I render a page to a bitmap from C

Postby Glidos » Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:08 pm

I need to render office-document pages to bitmaps from C. I'm sure that libreoffice can do the job, but it's big and I'm struggling to answer some really basic questions about it:

1 How much of libreoffice do I need? Is the core sufficient, or perhaps a set of submodules?

2 What IS libreoffice/core (built for Linux say)? Is it a single or set of .so files? Or is it a more complicated system with bits of java that need to be in specific locations? (Can it work without a JVM?)

3 Working from C, do I have to call via UNO?

I am reading the documentation, trying to answer these questions for myself, but I've been at it a while and I'm struggling a bit. Any advice would be most gratefully received.
