Re: How to cut/crop a part of a PDF file

  PDF is a file format instead of a programming language and for that

  commands like if and loop are removed, while graphics commands such

I dunno who wrote this, but I object to the wording "it doesn't need
to be interpreted". It certainly does need to be interpreted. Any time
something gets changed from internal to external representation, some
form of interpretation is being done.
