Bug#732820: O: libpdf-fdf-simple-perl -- Perl module to read and write (Acrobat) FDF files

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal


the maintainer of libpdf-fdf-simple-perl isn't active anymore, so I
hereby orphan this package.

Current package description:

Perl module to read and write (Acrobat) FDF files

Helps creating and extracting the content of FDF files. It is meant to
be a simple replacement for the Adobe FdfToolkit. Therefore some of it's
behavior, especially handling of diverse whitespace/newline artefacts is
orientated on FdfToolkit's handling.

After the extraction process the content is available within a hash

For creating FDF files it currently only supports setting text
values. Anyway, this should be enough to create FDF files for text
fields, text areas, checkboxes and radio buttons.

PDF::FDF::Simple uses Parse::RecDescent and understands both, the "Kids"
notation and the "dotted" notation for field names. Saving will always
use the "dotted"- notation.
