  • Fonts with name, embedding status, etc.

  • Unicode text output in UTF-8 or UTF-16 formats

pCOS Paths – Simple Syntax for PDF Objects
Instead of getting bogged down by complex tree structures, e.g. for bookmarks or form fields, you can easily access PDF objects by using the simple pCOS path syntax. It offers convenient shortcuts for accessing commonly used PDF objects, such as pages, fonts, bookmarks, form fields etc.

pCOS Library or Command-Line Tool?
pCOS is available as a programming library (component) for various development environments, and as a command-line tool for batch operations. Both offer similar features, but are suitable for different deployment tasks.

The pCOS programming library is used for integration into desktop or server applications. Examples for using the library with all supported language bindings are included in the pCOS package. A variety of additional examples is available in the pCOS Cookbook on the PDFlib Web site.

The pCOS command-line tool is suited for batch processing PDF documents. It doesn’t require any programming, but offers powerful command-line options which can be used to integrate it into complex workflows. The pCOS command-line tool extends the features of the library:

  • Simple retrieval of common PDF elements, such as bookmarks, annotations, metadata, form fields, etc.
  • Extended mode for querying more complex objects and customizing the output format
  • Extract data items, such as file attachments, ICC profiles, etc.
  • Emit information as comma-separated values or a userdefined format for import into a spreadsheet or database
  • Recursion feature for dumping composite PDF objects, such as dictionaries and arrays


Supported Development Environments
PDFlib pCOS is everywhere – it runs on practically all computing platforms. We offer variants for all common flavors of Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Unix.

  • C and C++
  • Java, including servlets and Java Application Server
  • .NET for use with C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, etc.
