During development testing, I’d prefer to create uncompressed, non-binary PDF files with iTextSharp so that I can check their internals easily. Like Theodore said you can extract text from a pdf and like Chris pointed out. as long as it is actually text (not outlines or bitmaps). Best thing to do is buy Bruno. just hadnt had time to investigate the possibility but we routinely grab a federal document from a website but we only care about including the.

Extracting objects from a PDF | iText Developers
So I thought that implementing my own decodePredictor in c might have been a better choice. But you can look at his site for examples.

This can be handy when you need to debug a PDF document. One option in listing Again, I am not understanding. I am expecting that the 1st column should be either 0,1 or 2 according to pdf specification.
Here is a code example: Have you posted to their support list?
I use the FlateDecode from iText first, then itexxt applied the filter algorithm. But the eventual output stream is a stream of 0 bytes. I’m pretty sure the output from FlateDecode is correct because it could decode streams without decodeParms.
The next example uses different techniques to change the compression settings of a newly created PDF document.
In the second edition chapter 15 covers extracting text. But there’s no reply. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. If so, in the 3rd row, 0x8A becomes ubcompress Nor do these need to be in lexical order, for reliable results you may have to reorder text blocks based on their coordinates.
I’m not completely clear on what you are doing. Decompressing can be done exactly the same way by setting the compression level to zero, or by using the following code. The Document class has a static member variable, compress, that can be set to false uncpmpress you want to avoid having iText compress the content streams of pages and form XOb-jects.
However, I’m itwxt on how to retrieve the inputs to getstreambytes from the pdf. As a workaround, you can use the getPageContent method to get the content stream of a page, and the setPageContent method to put it back.
It’s quite possible that each word or even letter has its own text block. This is why I tried to use flateDecode and decodePredictor directly. As you can see, compressing as many objects as possible is the most effective option in this example, but be aware that the compression percentage largely depends on the type of content in the document.

Suppose your PDF contains confidential information that should only be seen by a limited number of people.
