Replace Text in a PDF Document

Right now I have been trying to just replace text, and nothing works this is the code i have thus far. In general, it is also possible that the PDF contains compressed text. You also forgot binmode on the OUT file handle. The crude way to do what you want is to convert the PDF to Postscript, substitute the text, and convert it back. I use the ImageMagick program 'convert' to do this.

Postscript filtering code goes here I believe that ImageMagick is in turn calling Ghostscript to handle the conversion, so you could use that directly, instead. It should work perfectly the first time! CAM::PDF lets you easily edit content streams and stuff, and, most importantly, takes care of everything you don't want to do manually, like adjusting the object crossreference table after having modified an object's size as explained by Russ , un compressing the streams, etc.

In that case you could try:. The page content you get is in raw PDF syntax, i. Literal text strings are written in parentheses like in PostScript , so that's what you have to look for. In the worst case, you'll find characters individually wrapped in parentheses. Well, just give it a try I haven't seen the output of Indesign, but the fact that you are able to replace text directly suggests that Indesign does not compress all its objects.

That's good for your purposes. You'll want the PDF Reference published by Adobe to understand this better, but look at the xref table in the output file. It looks like this: xref 69 16 n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n [download] You'll want to know which objects you are modifying so you can correct all the objects with higher offset values. An object starts with a section like this: 71 0 obj [download] This is the 71st object note that the xref table I copied started its numbering at 69, for some reason , 0th revision.

It starts after bytes, which you can see in the xref table above. At a minimum, if all else goes well, you will have to correct the byte offstes of the objects that appear after your changes, so that the viewer can "find" them. If you're looking for an easy fix, this won't help. If you're willing to invest some time learning a really cool file format, jump on in! Pun kinda intended There may be more than one xref table.

For your purposes, update all of them with offsets greater than your byte location until you know why you don't have to PDF via Perl?

Need Help?? The PDF contains various checksums that make it difficult to replace text this way, unless you use code that recomputes the checksum and puts them into the PDF. Good luck! I don't think this is the first time you have helped me out alot, I appreciate your patience with me, this deffently put me on track where i wanted to be, but i think i will eventually learn more about what Russ was talking about again thanks i do appreciate it.

PDFs are relatively simple beasts, but what you're trying to do is corrupting the xref tables, which hold byte offsets to the beginnings of PDF objects. I believe this node can help you with creating and reading a pdf file. Log In? How do I use this? Other CB clients. The St.

I can't be the only person who imagined the office of the future, free from the confines of the eight and a half by eleven sheet or A4, for my international friends , would have long since arrived. Instead, we've managed to land in an intermediate state of not paperless, but less paper. Between a trusty scanner, email and various other communication tools, and getting really good at organizing my digital archives, I'm not totally unhappy with where we are today. And I do occasionally admit to reading a paper book, sending a postcard, or gasp printing something off to give to someone else.

This is usually not necessary, but in some situations, additional information beyond the visible link text is needed, particularly for screen reader users. Screen readers can read visible link text, but replacing the screen text with meaningful alternate text for links in a PDF document can make links more accessible. Links in PDF documents are represented by a Link tag and objects in its sub-tree, consisting of a link object reference or Link annotation and one or more text objects.

Она состояла из легких в использовании программ для домашнего компьютера, которые зашифровывали электронные послания таким образом, что они становились абсолютно нечитаемыми. Пользователь писал письмо, пропускал его через специальную программу, и на другом конце линии адресат получал текст, на первый взгляд не поддающийся прочтению, - шифр. Тот же, кто перехватывал такое сообщение, видел на экране лишь маловразумительную абракадабру. Расшифровать сообщение можно было лишь введя специальный ключ - секретный набор знаков, действующий как ПИН-код в банкомате. Ключ, как правило, был довольно длинным и сложным и содержал всю необходимую информацию об алгоритме кодирования, задействуя математические операции, необходимые для воссоздания исходного текста. Теперь пользователь мог посылать конфиденциальные сообщения: ведь если даже его послание перехватывалось, расшифровать его могли лишь те, кто знал ключ-пароль.
