Topic: PDF forms JS vs FDF

I'm afraid I don't get it. I have made PDF forms without javascript and I want to learn how to use the java script so I can do more than just fill in online PDF forms.

So, I come to this site to learn and I find something called FDF. That does not seem to be mentioned in the Acrobat 5.0 documentation. What is it? Does it replace javascript on PDF forms? Is it just a server side thing that interfaces with Javascripted form fields? Does it require the purchase of an additional program? It clearly seems to require more language skills than I currently possess, but I am a quick learner. Can some one fill me in?

Hey, lets quit this stuff and go sailing on the sound, run the kayak over the waves, or hang glide a little. Ok? (Can I use your boat? Kayak, or hang glider? Mine are in the shop right now.)
