Constructor Details

- (Parser) initialize(buffer, objects = nil)

Create a new parser around a PDF::Reader::Buffer object

buffer - a PDF::Reader::Buffer object that contains PDF data objects - a PDF::Reader::ObjectHash object that can return objects from the PDF file

def initialize (buffer, objects=nil)
  @buffer = buffer
  @objects  = objects
end

Instance Method Details

- (Object) object(id, gen)

Reads an entire PDF object from the buffer and returns it as a Ruby String. If the object is a content stream, returns both the stream and the dictionary that describes it

id - the object ID to return gen - the object revision number to return

def object (id, gen)
  Error.assert_equal(parse_token, id)
  Error.assert_equal(parse_token, gen)
  Error.str_assert(parse_token, "obj")

  obj = parse_token
  post_obj = parse_token

  if post_obj == "stream"
    stream(obj)
  else
    obj
  end
end

- (Object) parse_token(operators = {})

Reads the next token from the underlying buffer and convets it to an appropriate object

operators - a hash of supported operators to read from the underlying buffer.
