You are right Graeme, I'm looking for a way to add an RTF file to a PDF. 
I need a report engine but I couln't find one that fit my needs.

Currently I'm using LibreOffice in headless mode for some projects, but 
this one cannot use it (because of memory constraints).

Is there a way to get the fpReport source?.
