Topic: How to creat PDF files

My name is Mac, I just started getting into creating PDF files from scratch. I am in need for some help on how to actually creat PDF files from scratch. I have all the Adobe acrobat manuals and the Acrobat SDK, but don't know what to do with them nor how to use it (other than reading it of course) :)! Is there a place where I can go to tell me the first few steps that are involved in creating PDF files from scratch. I red the Acrobat SDK and a lot of the manuals, but none of them said how I can actually start creating PDF files. I was wondering if anyone could help me in any way. I mean do I need a regular text editor to type in the PDF commands(If that's what they are called)...? and do I need to compile those commands or not...? Are there some samples that I can look at and actually see it working? Are there instructions I can follow to guide me through the first steps of the actuall development? I mean noe of them said...Ok first do this 2nd do that, and so on so forht

Enough of my questions! I hope I didn't confuse anyone :) So if you're still not completely confused please reply as soon as you can. Your help will be greatly appreciated. This is of high importance.

Thanks ahead for your time, and I'll be looking forward to your replys
