XPDF wrapper - jpjacobs - 11-04-2008 05:34 AM

I assume some people know xpdf, and have noticed that in almost no pdf viewer you can make bookmarks.
Now i've written a little thing to make bookmarks for a PDF file, viewed in xpdf (or as matter a fact, any pdfviewer that can work like a server thing).
OK, there are some rough edges, and functions on my wishlist, but it works for now...
Comments and suggestions welcome!

I'm missing something here. This script executes an xpdf command. I downloaded xpdf software for windows and there is no xpdf.exe. There are several other executables like pdftotext.exe.

never used xpdf on windows...
the readme says this:
Xpdf runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2. The non-X
components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems and
should run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler.

so i guess xpdf just does not run on windows...
