XPDF wrapper

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!

greetz,

JP

RE: XPDF wrapper

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.

RE: XPDF wrapper

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...
