Hi all,
I am in the process of writing a small perl code which can read a PDF file.
I want to know which perl library should i use for this.
Like PDF::API2 or which one....

Thanks

I personally don't have any experience attempting to access a PDF document using the modules, but I am usually wary of modules less than version 1.0, unless they have proven themselves.

I know that modules like PDF::Parse have been used here before in some code. You can always read the "PDF" core module and it describes the others in its series.

Regards,

You are suggesting to start with PDF::Core ?

PDF::Core or PDF::Extract or PDF::Parse are the three widely used modules, that I know, for the purpose. You can make your choice according to requirement.
