Rpdf2txt

Hi to all,
i’m trying to make a pdf parser. This is my code and the script seems to
work…

require ‘rpdf2txt/parser’
require ‘rpdf2txt/default_handler’

parser = Rpdf2txt::Parser.new(File.read(‘filename.pdf’))
output = File.open(‘prova.txt’, ‘w’)
handler = Rpdf2txt::SimpleHandler.new(output)
parser.extract_text(handler)

The problem is that the file ‘prova.txt’ created is empty. I’ve not
found documentation about this library so i don’t know what i’m doing
wrong.
Can anybody help me??

thanks in advance

Andrea C.

Ciao Andrea

That looks right - if you can you send me your PDF off-list I’ll have a
look.

Interesting - this is the very first PDF-Document I’ve seen that uses
ASCII85 Encoding.

A simple ASCII85 Decoder, anyone?

Andrea: you’ll have to give me some time on this one - I’ll get back
to you with a patch…

Cheers
Hannes
