Hi John,

thanks for your quick answer. With your help, I could more or less do
what I want with the document saving it to some path on the server.

However, I'm struggling to find out how to return the actual document in
my export plugin's "output_list" subroutine. Returning $oodoc or the
file path doesn't work, obviously. Can you help me out once more, please?

Cheers,
Dennis
