VERSIONThis document describes version 0.05 of PDF::Writer, released Oct 25, 2005.
# Or, to explicitly specify a back-end ...
use PDF::Writer 'pdflib';
use PDF::Writer 'pdfapi2';
use PDF::Writer 'mock';
my $writer = PDF::Writer->new;
DESCRIPTIONThis is a generalized API that allows a module that generates PDFs to transparently target multiple backends without changing its code. The currently supported backends are:
Available from CPAN
PDFlib (versions 3+)
Available from ``/www.pdflib.com'' in http;. There is both a pay and free version. PDF::Writer will work with both, within their limitations. Please see the appropriate documentation for details.
This allows modules that target PDF::Writer to write their tests against a mock interface. Please see PDF::Writer::mock for more information.
If both PDF::API2 and pdflib_pl are available, PDF::API2 is preferred. If neither is available, a run-time exception will be thrown. You must explicitly load the PDF::Writer::mock driver, if you wish to use it.
This acts as a factory, loading the appropriate PDF::Writer driver.
CODE COVERAGEWe use Devel::Cover to test the code coverage of our tests. Below is the Devel::Cover report on this module's test suite.
