NAME

setpdfbackground.pl - Apply a background color to a PDF page

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 setpdfbackground.pl [options] file.pdf pagenum color [outfile]

 Options:
   -o --order          preserve the internal PDF ordering for output
   -v --verbose        print the internal representation of the PDF
   -h --help           verbose help message
   -V --version        print CAM::PDF version



The color is specified as 3 or 6 character hexadecimal RGB. For example, f00 and ff0000 both mean pure red while 999 and 999999 both mean medium gray.

DESCRIPTION

This program alters a PDF document to add a solid background color behind the page contents.

CAVEATS

Some PDF creation programs assume a white background and draw bogus white rectangles all over the screen that you usually cannot see. If your PDF has such rectangles, you can sometimes fix it, but it is a pain. The best recommendation is to recreate the original PDF using a smarter library, if possible. Alternatively, you can contact Clotho Advanced Media for a commercial solution to this problem.
