Subject: Can’t handle newlines in references
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 631b
In PDF syntax, an indirect reference consists of three distinct tokens that can be separated by any PDF whitespace, and even comments. For example, this is a syntactically valid indirect reference: 1 %eieio 0 R Text::PDF does not allow comments at all (based on reading the code; that is not a problem for my PDFs). But it does choke on newlines if the object is long enough that it has not all been read into the file yet. This happens with: 1895 0 obj<</Count 253/Kids[1896 0 R 1 0 R 7 0 R 13 0 R ... etc., with 253 entries. Text::PDF::File::readval needs to read more data if it finds what could be a partial reference.
