PDFlib pCOS V3.0 supports the latest PDF standards and features including support for the Acrobat X file format.
PDFlib pCOS provides a simple and elegant facility for retrieving any information from a PDF document which is not part of the page contents. For example, PDF metadata, interactive elements (links etc.), or page dimensions can easily be queried with pCOS. With pCOS you can extract a variety of interesting items and create output for different purposes. By processing multiple PDF documents with a single call you can easily create summaries of document info entries, page formats, fonts, or any other property. Combined with tabular output this provides a powerful PDF administration tool.
The new version brings pCOS up to date with the newest PDF standards and features including support for the file format of Acrobat X.
