( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
With the help of Martin Hosken, author of the Text::PDF modules I attacked the task like this:
#!perl -w use strict; use Text::PDF::File; if (@ARGV) { for my $file (@ARGV) { if ( -r $file ) { print gettitle($file), "\n" } } } elsif ( $^O =~ /Mac/ ) { chomp( my $pwd = `pwd` ); my $file = MacPerl::Ask( "Input file:", $pwd ); if ( -r $file ) { print gettitle($file), "\n" } } else { die "no input, no output\n"; } sub gettitle { my $pdffile = shift; my $pdf = Text::PDF::File->open($pdffile) || die; my $info = $pdf->{'Info'}->val; my $title = $info->{'Title'}->val; }
I will check if manually going through all lines of the PDF file will give a speed boost.

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.
