PAD files are XML documents describing a shareware or freeware application (PAD stands for Portable Application Descrition). PAD files are great for sharing information about a software tool. You can create a PAD file easily using the freeware tool PADGen.
The annoying thing about PAD files is that the PAD format is constantly being updated and modified. It's a little tiresome to have to update all your PAD files with PADGen every time this happens.
Therefore I created this PHP script that generates dynamic PAD files based on a template. The template is simply an updated PAD file. Now, whenever the PAD file format changes, simply replace the template file with a new-fangled PAD file and everthing else will automatically be up-to-date.
