Subject: [PATCH] Allow whitespace before xref
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 266b
PDFs generated by ABBYY FIneReader (and some old version of Acrobat Distiller) often have whitespace before the xref token; i.e., the xref token comes a couple of bytes after the offset specified by startxref. The attached patch makes Text::PDF tolerate such files.
