( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I used PDF.pm for my local needs, I reworked it a lot, because it is not only warnings and strict unsafe, but also it does not always parse things correctly.
I did not succeeded polishing it to 100% working state yet.

Another solution - if your machine have Acrobat (exchange) you can use Win32::OLE module. It is not enough to have Acrobat Reader installed in this case :(

use strict; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const; my $abat = Win32::OLE->new('AcroExch.App'); my $abdoc = Win32::OLE->new('AcroExch.AVDoc'); $abdoc->Open('d:\Documentation\perl\xtk.pdf','d:\Documentation\perl\xt +k.pdf'); my $pddoc = $abdoc->GetPDDoc; print "pp=".$pddoc->GetNumPages,"\n"; for (qw(Title Subject Author)) { print "$_:".$pddoc->GetInfo($_),"\n"; }
Acrobat SDK documentation have information about how automate it via OLE.

Warmest wishes,
Vadim

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
