NAME

PDF::Writer - PDF writer abstraction layer

CONTENTS

VERSION

This document describes version 0.05 of PDF::Writer, released Oct 25, 2005.

SYNOPSIS



  use PDF::Writer;

  # Or, to explicitly specify a back-end ...
  use PDF::Writer pdflib;
  use PDF::Writer pdfapi2;
  use PDF::Writer mock;

  my $writer = PDF::Writer->new;



DESCRIPTION

This is a generalized API that allows a module that generates PDFs to transparently target multiple backends without changing its code. The currently supported backends are:
o PDF::API2

Available from CPAN

o PDFlib (versions 3+)

Available from /www.pdflib.com in http;. There is both a pay and free version. PDF::Writer will work with both, within their limitations. Please see the appropriate documentation for details.

o Mock

This allows modules that target PDF::Writer to write their tests against a mock interface. Please see PDF::Writer::mock for more information.

If both PDF::API2 and pdflib_pl are available, PDF::API2 is preferred. If neither is available, a run-time exception will be thrown. You must explicitly load the PDF::Writer::mock driver, if you wish to use it.

METHODS

o <B>B>new()<B>B>

This acts as a factory, loading the appropriate PDF::Writer driver.

CODE COVERAGE

We use Devel::Cover to test the code coverage of our tests. Below is the Devel::Cover report on this module’s test suite.
