This is trivial, but very annoying for beginners. In the synopsis, the example goes: ... # Add some text to the page $text = $pdf->text(); ... But should be ... # Add some text to the page $text = $page->text(); ... So the synopsis code doesn't actually work. While this may be unimportant for most, this is not the case for beginners. It's just a bad first impression, so beginners might be fooled into thinking PDF::API2 is bad quality.

Oops. Right you are. I've fixed this in the source, and will get a new release out before long. Thanks for reporting it! Steve Simms

Wow! That was fast! I actually never reported a bug to CPAN before - and I know how open source developers underestimate superficial issues like these sometimes - so now I'm really impressed to see that being handled so quickly. Thanks a lot & keep up the good work, Frank
2.017, just released, has this fix.
