PDF::Builder::Basic::PDF::Name(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation PDF::Builder::Basic::PDF::Name(3)

PDF::Builder::Basic::PDF::Name - Inherits from PDF::Builder::Basic::PDF::String and stores PDF names (things beginning with /)

Creates a new string object (not a full object yet) from a given string. The string is parsed according to input criteria with escaping working, particular to Names.

Converts a name into a string by removing the / and converting any hex munging.

Returns a name formatted as PDF. $pdf is optional but should be the PDF File object for which the name is intended if supplied.

Suitably encode the string $string for output in the File object $pdf (the exact format may depend on the version of $pdf).

Suitably decode the string $string as read from the File object $pdf (the exact decoding may depend on the version of $pdf). Principally, undo the hex encoding for PDF versions > 1.1.
