When trying to read a certain pdf file (attached) I got the following error: Malformed PDF file FileHandle=GLOB(0x90a8fcc) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/PDF/API2/Basic/PDF/ line 318. It looks like the end of the pdf should not be startxref 146169 %%EOF but rather startxref 146169 %%EOF The pdf is produced by a clipping software so I can not do much about that. When I added a space as an alternative to the check in it worked: 317c317 < if ($buf !~ m/startxref$cr\s*([0-9]+)$cr\%\%eof.*?/oi) --- Show quoted text
> if ($buf !~ m/startxref$cr| \s*([0-9]+)$cr\%\%eof.*?/oi)
Not a very elegant solution, but it seems to work. -- Gregor Retti, Ph.D. Innsbruck Medical University EMail:
