Topic: Web Capture Plug-in?

I need to programatically do the following:

1) Given an html URL convert the HTML document (including links) to PDF and save it in a file with a unique name.

2) My program will be running on a busy web server so it must be robust.

I have Acrobat 4.0 and have read all the sdk docs. I cannot figure out how to pass a URL to the web2pdf plug-in (without using the stupid popup dialog box) and then tell web2pdf to save the file with a provided filename. Are the web2pdf plug-in functions and parameters documented somewhere?

Using the IAC API or the SDK API is pretty straightforward. What is not so easy is passing parameters without using the UI dialog boxes.

Any ideas to help me out here?

Thanks,
MGS
