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.

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.
