|Subject:||Typos in ExtGState.pm|
In 2.027 (and probably all the way back), line #238 should set 'D' property instead of 'ML'. Line #258 should set 'RI' instead of 'FL'. Also, the module has no strictures enabled, and if we turn them on, then it dies in line #44, because of unknown '$self'. It's unclear what this method ('new_api') is supposed to do (and if it was ever used at all because of this bug), i.e. when we should use it -- both reading code and very cryptic pod. Plus, I had to look up what on Earth is the "Halftone Phase" - it's from the Display Postscript extensions, was described in Postscript Level2 Manual, briefly mentioned in PDF 1.2 and gone without a trace in later references. I think there's no need nor support for it anymore. Rather (it goes to wishlist :) ) the 'SMask' ExtGState parameter would be implemented.
