Subject: Cropbox v.s. Bounding box
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 414b
PDF::API2::Page's member function "get_cropbox" computes, actually, a bounding box (shortly, "bbox" in GS) instead of a cropbox. A crop tool (like member function "cropbox", utility "pdfcrop") can put a "/CropBox[...]" key/value pair to a pdf page object's dictionary. The problem is that this field cannot be accessed by the current interface. I'm currently using PDF::API2 with version 2.019, with perl 5.12.3.
