    Help with jsPDF plugin

    I'm using the jsPDF plugin to make PDF's using javascript base on users input.

    Theres a function to save the PDF

    Code:
    $('.download-pdf').click(function(){
    			eval(editor.getValue());
    
    			var file = demos[$('#template').val()];
    			if (file === undefined) {
    				file = 'demo';
    			}
    			doc.save(file + '.pdf');
    		});
    		return false;
    This gets the browser to download the file. However, what I want is for the PDF to be emailed directly to me. Would this be as simple as passing file+'.pdf' into a AJAX request to a php page? Or would I need some other method, maybe saving the file to the server?

    js can't email, but php can using built-in tools, so you need to send it to php if you want it emailed.
